Slate Valleys Path – Cwmorthin Details
Tanygrisiau may be the highest settlement in this valley these days, but walk up into Cwmorthin to see Plas Cwmorthin, or what’s left of it. You can extend the walk into Bwlch Cwmorthin and Rhosydd Quarry which was an even tougher place for the quarrymen to live.
Dave also established Walk up Snowdon, Walk up Scafell Pike and Walk up Ben Nevis just to mention a few.
