The Taff Trail, Aberfan and Hidden History!

This is a full day long walk in the Valleys with easy access from Quakers Yard railway station. It is 10 miles and there is one steep ascent. Parking is available on the road by the station.

We’ll meet at Quakers Yard Railway Station and walk along the Taff trail, very beautiful along this section, before heading up to and through The Aberfan Memorial Cemetery and then onto the top of the hill and following the ridge with great views on all sides down towards the start point but passing through forest and of course The Gap! We will also search for a 6th century chapel!

Do search the programme for other great events!

  1. Hi there!

    Just wondering if it’s okay to join. At the moment government guidelines say that only two households can walk together.

    1. That changes on the 11th July when outdoor attractions will open in Wales. Walking with Wales Outdoors is far safer than going to an outdoor market, a supermarket or perhaps even walking through your city park. The walk begins with guidance and we organise ourselves into ‘bubbles’ and we observe the social distancing advice. The way I see it is that Wales Outdoors is a non essential shopping environment, it being my business and where is sell the accumulation of memories and photos, and the Welsh Government has this to say about shops ‘All retail shops can open, if they can comply with the physical distancing duty in Welsh law’ and we can certainly comply with the social distancing advice. So yes, Wales is open, walking is allowed and I believe that walking in small groups in safe and ‘remote’ environments is far safer than almost any other activity outside of your house.
