Help connect Llanharry

Many Slow Ways have several route options. Some will be better than others, or good for different reasons.

Our goal is for each Slow Way to have at least one route that is verified and surveyed. To be verified – and get its snail badge – a route needs at least three positive reviews.

Give a hike and help get a for every one of Llanharry’s Slow Ways.

The green lane leading out of Llanharry was a mud bath and needed a lot of chicanery to dodge the deeper puddles....

Walk this route

The only issue I had with navigation was at Maes yr Haul Farm, just before the village of Pendoylan - the path is signposted from both ends on the lanes, but there was a tied gate in the fields. If you`re not happy to climb tied gates, there is a short detour (maybe a couple of hundred metres further) around the lanes....

Just before the bridge (opposite the pub) you follow the old enclosed track alongside the river (photo d) and into an industrial estate. As you leave the station you follow a wide cycle lane alongside the river (photo b). As you hit the road remember to cross the bridge and continue the opposite side of the river (photo a(2)) this will lead you into Talbot Green where you finish the walk along the last stretch of the road....

I walked from Llanharry to Cowbridge - mostly an enjoyable walk, especially the section just north of Cowbridge. Further north, there are several dilapidated stiles that need to be crossed with care, and one stile has been blocked by a wire fence (not barbed) around a field: an additional obstacle to climb over....
