Brecon Beacons waterfall country


This waterfall is at the start of this trail.


This is the same waterfall as the previous image just more zoomed out.

Elidir trail

This is the fairy kingdom trial on the banks of the Nedd. This fall is called ‘Sgwd Gwladus, the Lady Falls.’

Brecon Beacons waterfall walk

Horseshoe falls

So we went on a walk in the Brecon Beacons to follow one of the waterfall trails. We got up early to avoid the crowd as we wanted to do some long exposure photography. We decided to follow the trail for Horseshoe falls, which is only 1.3 miles and the walk is pretty easy. We did the trail backwards and started at Pont Melin-Fach car park.

The weather was good but spring had not arrived up in the Brecon Beacons, the trees were still bare and it looked quite bleak still! Very different from where we live by Monmouth with all the lush greenery and the trees in full blossom.

I think we will go back in the summer when it’s greener! Well worth a visit at any time though.
