Gilfach and Drymmau Mountain
A double walk today, a fairly short circular walk through the woods around Gilfach, followed by a longer walk up Drymmau Mountain.
The first part of our walk was alongside a stream which opened out into this lovely little pool area, a perfect spot to have a sit and a bit of a paddle.
Continuing onwards gave us views lovely open views over Gilfach and the Neath valley.
From there it was off to the pub for a spot of lunch and a sneaky refill of the water bottles. The slope up to Drymmau mountain was fairly easy, not too steep, but god it was punishing in the heat - felt a bit like I was melting.
A lovely old dry stone wall. These always fascinate me.
I forgot to map the first walk, rookie mistake, but here's the second leg.
