Cwm Gwaun

The Sunday discussion resulted in a decision to visit the Gwaun Valley and the western end of the Carn Ingli range of hills.


The car journey started with some excitement as we came across an accident which had just happened.  A young man had somehow managed to skid into a hedge and was unable to drive the car back on the road. He was a little concerned as he was on his way to a job interview with the police!!

Anyway with a number of people helping and the use of a tow rope we recovered the car and he drove away.  We would love to know how the interview went.

Our journey continued and we parked up in Pontfaen in the Gwaun Valley. We took a route alongside the Afon Gwaun which after all the rain was running well.

 Following a coffee break we joined the minor road to Llanychaer which headed steeply uphill to find a green lane and eventually onto the open ground and again uphill to Garn Fawr and Mynydd Dinas.

All the way up there!

Looking towards Fishguard and Goodwick

You can just see the Irish Ferry in Goodwick

Garn Fawr

We continued to Carn Enoch and onto the minor road to join the path leading to Bedd Morris with a strong wind from the south west pushing us along.

The wind would now be head on for a while as we descended overlooking Cwm Bach and then to the picnic site at Sychnant for a well deserved cup of coffee and a short rest before walking back along the road to Ponfaen.
