An interesting walk passing several places of interest leading to the lost village of Pen-y-Graig. There are several stiles on this walk. Start by taking the footpath south from the car park along the Grwyne Fawr river taking the lane to Hill Farm and onto Cwm-Cegy farm. Our route then ascends and descends via the track to Pine Grove and then to the lost village of Pen-y Graig. We will spend some time over lunch exploring the village and the possible reasons for its abandonment. We return to our start at Llangenny via the forestry commission paths Cwm-Cegy farm and the riverside walk back to the start.
