Surveys

We are working to build-up a picture of what routes look like. To do that we are asking volunteers to survey routes so that we can communicate features, obstacles and challenges that may make a route desirable or not.

Slow Ways surveyors are asked to complete some basic online training, but they are not vetted. If you are dependent on the survey information being correct in order to complete a route, we recommend that you think critically about the information provided. You may also wish to wait until more than one survey has been completed.

Help people know more about this route by volunteering to submit a survey.

This is a nice scenic and very largely off road.

Picks up Baglan and Briton Ferry on the way so connects those villages as well - easy jumping on points. I actually walked it in two stretches from the Ferry to Neath and from Port Talbot to the Ferry joining at the top of Jersey Park. This would also be a breakpoint if you wanted to detour down into Briton Ferry for snacks etc. The shops are closer to the route here than in Baglan.

Significantly slower starting at the Port Talbort end because it climbs right up Mynydd Dinas to the national coast path along the top - there are other paths lower down along the side of the hill which all meet up.

It's really very satisfying being up on those paths as you're parallel to the motorway and dual carriageways so the contrast is striking and you get a sense of how you're progressing along!

There is one odd detour through a the housing at Baglan instead of the waymarked Coast Path route through the same estate.

The route was otherwise largely easy to follow. I went mildly astray once by not staying far enough right coming onto the footpath at Pant Howell Ddu - it looked too muddy to be correct, but it is and dried up quickly. (Keep the piles of stones to your left)

This part of the route was completely new to me and is def a way I would routinely use as an alternative to the canal path which is my current usually walking route into Neath. Very pleasant bit of woodland.

The route is trails much of the way - some but not all flat enough for wheeling. Short sections are very tree-root-y or muddy which would be a hindrance to wheeling - and there's the extensive steps up out of Port Talbot.
