Things to do in Brynamman, South Wales


Brynamman (Welsh: Brynaman) sits at the foot of the Black Mountain at the western end of the Brecon Beacons National Park. The Black Mountain Centre housed in a converted school building in the heart of the town is a good place to start your visit. The friendly staff can give advice about local walks and attractions and - what's more - the eatery offers great food at sensible prices.

Brynamman is a good place to start a visit to Fforest Fawr Geopark - one of eight areas in the UK designated for their spectacular geological heritage - these landscapes and their people have been shaped by rock -from Bronze Age people who left us cairns on the Black Mountain to the miners of the last century.

Check out nearby Ynys Dawela beside the River Amman; once a colliery, it's now a nature reserve bursting with wildlife. Take a trip up the mountain road towards Llangadog and enjoy a fantastic panorama from the viewpoint at the road summit. Also not far away is Henllys Vale - the old tramway makes a great walkway beside the River Twrch and gives access onto the Black Mountain with its industrial archaeological and prehistoric monuments.
