Mynydd Y Garn Fawr.jpg

A fairly strenuous walk of about 9.5 km (6 miles), suitable for older children, but not recommended for young children or people with limited mobility.

The walk climbs past old coal and iron workings to Keeper's Pond and the Foxhunter Car Park before following the ridge of Mynydd y Garn Fawr, passing the Bronze-Age cairn Carn y Defaid and eventually descending to join the Llanofer Road, from which we descend to follow Afon Llwyd and thence back to the World Heritage Centre.

There are some steep ascents (and descents), and some parts can be quite muddy in wet weather, but walkable with appropriate footwear etc.

BWHEG GUIDED WALKS PROGRAMME


Some walks will be best for reasonably fit adults, but many will be suitable for older children or people with limited mobility. They will range in distance from 5 to 10 km (3 - 6 miles).

Most walks will start from the Blaenavon World Heritage Centre, usually at 10.00 a.m., with a few afternoon walks starting at 2.00 p.m. Where an alternative start point is given, this indicates an intermediate point on the walk with car parking nearby.

Please wear appropriate footwear and be prepared in case of wet weather.


Details on the walks for Spring 2022 can be downloaded here and Summer walks 2022 here.
