Penllergare Valley Woods (Official) is a beautiful wooded area created in 19th century. It was overgrown and disused for many years but is now subject to an extensive restoration program. It’s a haven for wildlife and has an abundance of moths, butterflies, dragonflies, birds, damselflies, bats, birds along with a plethora of both wild, native plants and more exotic, imported flora.
The ground can be muddy and uneven in places and there are a few challenging slopes and crossing places so, sensible footwear, please. We do have a few walking poles that we can loan out for the walk.
We will follow the winding River Llan through the woods, crossing a few small bridges. We’ll head towards the lower lake and wander past the small quarry then head back to the river and make our way back up the valley for a much deserved cuppa in the coffee shop. The walk will take approximately, 2 hrs 30 mins and, as usual, will be at a leisurely pace.
