Heritage Trail

Industrial revolution, from when Wales led the World.

At this point we cheated, and used a car to reach Trefil. If you do not want to cheat, climb the other side of the Clydach Gorge (perhaps using the tramroads by the Rock And Fountain), then follow the Hafod or some alternative route, around to the impressive Llangatwg Escarpment, and invent a route over Mynydd Llangynidr to reach Chartists Cave. Pick up our route from there. It will take about a day to follow this route.

We began the walk up the side of the Trefil Las moor, looking for somewhere convenient to stay, without too much heather, flat, not too boggy. As we started, so did the hail, with a large, dark cloud rolling overhead.
