Free again from the “Navigators” decisions, Paul and I chose another walk from Cicerone’s Walking in Carmarthenshire.
We parked in the car park of the Bronwydd Village Hall and walked upstream along the Afon Gwili. For those who enjoy a spot of white water kayaking/canoeing this is a splendid grade 2 river with one grade 3ish falls.
The guide makes mention of a well placed bench where we turn left and head for the road. We used to have our lunch on that bench after canoeing down river from Cynwyl Elfed. Once over the road the route headed steadily uphill near the chapel and overlooked the Nant Cwmdwyfran valley.
We had a break for coffee in the grounds of St Michaels Church in Newchurch a hot bed of those who supported the Rebecca Riots and then headed for a pleasant bridleway climbing up and then down in the Nant Hir Valley.
This led to yet another valley, Nant Tinc and a path leading back to Bronwydd where we passed the Gwili Steam Railway Station before arriving back at the car.
