Surrounding the river Tawe,
the Swansea Valley goes as far north as the Brecon Beacons and
almost as far south as Swansea Bay. It has a wealth of
heritage dating as far back as the 12th Century.
Made up of 1 town and 14
villages, the Valley that was once buried under a cloud of

The Ystalyfera circuit takes you to the
highest peak in the Valley and will give you a fantastic view of
the Swansea valley, the circuit is approx 2.3km (not taking into
