The Community Route

Following the railway from Pontycymer to Bryngarw Country Park is a tarmaced multi-use path known as the community route, formed on the course of one of the Garw Valley Railway's running lines, as it was once double track at the peak of coal exporting.

The railway is now its custodian and with the help of the local community and councillors it is lovingly maintained to keep back vegetation for year-round clear access.

If you would like to get involved with the maintenance of the path please keep up to date with our facebook page for upcoming work parties and balsam bashes!
