How to get here


Turn off the A465 at Glyneath and follow the A4109 north, first left and first right, parking in Lon-y-Nant. Go over the stile at the top of the road, cross a brook and keep the stock fence to your right. At the top, turn left and bear right round the wooded spoil heap to meet a well used path to the left. Follow this to another path to the right, through the nature reserve. The reserve fence and stile are in view a few metres beyond.


Bus numbers X75 and X55 from Swansea Quadrant Bus Station
to Glyneath.
