Falls, Fossils, Forests and Fleeces

Tawe Uchaf Community Council and Brecon Beacons National Park have produced an audio trail to help visitors enjoy the Nant Llech Waterfall Trail.

Henrhyd falls crown the head of this fascinating valley which is owned and managed by the National Trust. Explore the Waterfalls Trail from where the Llech meets the River Tawe at Abercraf. Walking the trail to Abercraf takes about an hour each way. The path can be uneven, wet and slippery, with some steep climbs. Seats along the trail are good places to rest and enjoy the valley. TAKE CARE and keep to the managed paths at all times. This site has been designated as a SSSI (Site of Special Scientific Interest) so take care not to damage or disturb any wildlife in this beautiful valley.

Along the waterfalls trail there are four audio listening points. You can download these tracks below either to take with you along the route or enjoy a virtual visit along the Nant Llech Waterfall Trail.

Pupils from Abercraf, Pen y Cae, Caehopkin and Coelbren Primary Schools worked together to make this short film about the trail.


Henrhyd is one of the easiest waterfalls to get to in the area. Visitors are responsible for their own safety. Keep to the managed paths and TAKE CARE, the ground around the falls is steep and can be slippery.

This project is part funded through the Rural Development Plan for Wales 2007-2013 which is financed by the European Union and the Welsh Assembly Government.
