Penwyllt

Upper Swansea Valley


This paragraph will introduce the topic of Penwyllt, mention its associations with Adelina Patti, and how it was once a thriving community but is now a disappeared town, with many of its buildings gone, and those few remaining having been put to a different use. How came it to die? And so on. Stuff like that, yeah? Right!

Peter Burgess
Penwyllt has a fascinating past. Around the village can be found the evidence of early tramroads, lime-burning, brick-making, and the Neath and Brecon Railway as well as the physical infrastructure of the close-knit former working community. The book describes these various facets of Penwyllt, as well as an overview of the geology, landscape and caves. The book includes three field walks which guide you around what can still be seen in this fascinating and beautiful area.
