Swansea valley from Darren Fach
Swansea valley from Darren Fach
A good view of most of this square from Darren Fach. You can clearly see the course of the old Swansea to Brynaman branch run diagonally through the picture. This is now part of the Sustrans cycle path network. What's less easy to see (but it's there if you look carefully) is evidence that there was once a railway junction right in the centre of the picture. Look very carefully at the fields to the right and you'll see a slight raised line run through them. This in fact is the original junction and course for the Vale of Swansea line to Brecon.
