Ffairfach Circular

The “Navigator” had called this walk “joining the dots” linking well known areas together. It could have been called a stylish walk as we think we crossed some 30 styles!

Route

We parked in the Woodlands Trust carpark in Ffairfach and then headed across the road to walk north along the Afon Tywi to cross the river by the pedestrian footbridge. It’s not clever to jump up and down to make it shake – especially at our age!

The path leads into Llandeilo town passing the colourful town houses.

We turned into the lane  into the Dinefwr Estate and we of course left the path and climbed up the steep muddy path and onto the carriage road and then into Penlan Park. Despite visiting Llandeilo on numerous occasion this was first visit to the park. Well worth the diversion as the views are worthwhile.

On leaving Llandeilo we cracked on soon to be following various footpaths which took us to the Afon Cennen. Trapp and close to the magnificent Carreg Cennen castle.
