Overview

The walk will take us through country lanes and fields.  Coffee will be taken when we walk through  a orchard just outside Talybont.  We will cross fields onto a lane taking us to Aber Chapel where we will have lunch and enjoy the stunning views up the Glyn Valley towards the reservoir. After lunch we will make  our way up to the Bryn Oer tramroad constructed in 1815 after crossing the river Caerfannell.  The tramroad will take us back to the village and we will walk along the canal tow path back to the car park.
