Photograph from the downloadable Fan Llia and Fan Dringarth Walk.
NPRN 84567  DS2010_118_003
Overall distance: 13.5 kilometres or 8.5 miles.
Altitudinal range: 360 metres (car park); 400 metres (Llia valley); 500 metres (Nant y Gwair).
Ground conditions: Poorly-drained on the west and south sides of Fan Llia and Fan Dringarth, drier and firmer on the east sides.
Map: OS OLM sheet (1:25000 scale) is recommended and it is this map which is referred to in this guide.
Footpaths: This route is only incidentally related to footpaths shown on the map.
Site References: Numbers in brackets refer to site record numbers (NPRN = National Primary Record Number). These references allow site details to be accessed through the Commission’s on-line database

This walk follows a course along the western slopes of Fan Llia to the head of the Llia valley, across Bryn Melyn and Cefn Perfedd into Cwm Dringarth and tributary stream valleys below Fan Dringarth, and down Cwm Dringarth above the Ystradfellte Reservoir, returning to the carpark across the southern extent of Cefn Perfedd. The walk is notable for monuments of prehistoric, medieval and post-medieval date which can be seen along its route. This is a quiet area for walking being well hidden from more popular routes.

The starting point is the parking and picnic area at SN92721646 on the unclassified road between Ystradfellte and Heol Senni which can be accessed on the south via the A4125 from Sennybridge and Defynnog.
