Our little group are attempting to move to a Friday walk and it worked on this particular day. The “Navigator” had decided on an inland circular starting and finishing at Felindre Farchog just east of Newport.
We headed up a minor road towards Pentre Ifan (not the burial chamber) and then into Pentre Evan Woods and on into Ty Canol Nature Reserve with lots of lichen covered trees. We did take an interesting route in the woods and somehow came out in Constantinople! This turned out to be the name of a property and not a foreign detour.
From here we followed the Afon Clydach north and into an area where there are those living an alternative lifestyle.
The main A487 was crossed and our route took us near Llwyngwair caravan site to Pont Newydd where we crossed onto the north side of the Afon Nefyr (Nevern) and tracked the river into the village of Nevern. We had our afternoon break here before visiting the church grounds where we saw the bleeding yew and the Nevern Cross.
The Afon Nefyr was again followed back to our car at Felindre Farchog
