Nant Gwernol

Nant Gwernol lies on the edge of Abergynolwyn village. It takes its name from a rocky river gorge with cascading waterfalls. Rugged peaks loom above the forested hillsides that are dotted with atmospheric ruins and slate spoil heaps.

There are waymarked trails that follow the riverside and explore the remains of Bryn Eglwys Slate Quarry. Leaflets are available from our stations.
