This is a full day long walk in the Valleys with easy access from Quakers Yard railway station

We’ll meet at Quakers Yard Railway Station and walk along the Taff trail, very beautiful along this section, before heading up to and through The Aberfan Memorial Cemetery and then onto the top of the hill and following the ridge with great views on all sides down towards the start point but passing through forest and of course The Gap! We will also search for a 6th century chapel!
