Sunday 27th December 2015

Meet at Pontywaun Wharf at 10.30am


Shake off those Xmas Excesses with a walk to the top of Twmbarlwm with a group led by enthusiastic rambler and CTS Member, Maggie Thomas.

The route is picturesque and classed as moderate – through Medart Woods and along the Forest Road – it is just under 6 miles and should take no more than 4 hours. Although, Maggie is willing to lead a slightly longer route home if enough people request it.

Please note that due to the extensive tree felling in the area – we may have to revise the route closer to the date – so watch this space or our Facebook page.

There will be a hot toddy and mince pies waiting at the top – but bring your own packed lunch and drink if needed.

Remember to wear stout walking shoes and appropriate clothing for the landscape and weather. It is your responsibility to be sure that you are fit enough and capable of this walk as there are a couple of steep inclines en route.

Everybody is welcome – the tump is just the place to clear your head after all the Christmas festivities


Please remember to dress appropriately for the terrain and weather. We are insured but you will be expected to be aware of your own safety and act responsibly


If you don’t fancy the whole walk you could always meet us at the car park on the common below the Tump and join us for the final assault to the top. Click here if you don’t know how to get to the car park – there’s an easy to follow map for you to download.

If you can’t drive up there please contact us via email and we’ll try to arrange some transport for you. Similarly if you are able to offer anybody a lift please let us know.


Can’t promise you weather like this – but this is Pegwyn y Bwlch photographed a couple of years ago – we’ll be coming down here on the way back
