Hen heol Mynydd Du old road
Hen heol yn dringo'r mynydd gyda Charreg Ffraith yn y pellter. Fe'i hadeiladwyd rhywbryd ar ol 1779 gan Ymddiriedolaeth Llangadog a phan agorwyd yr A4069 presennol oddeutu 1819 nid oedd galw wedyn i'r hen ffordd sy bellach yn llwybr ceffyl. Mae llinellau o gerrig calch yn nodi hynt yr hewl.

An old road ascending the mountain with Carreg Fraith hill (trans. mottled rock)in the distance. Built sometime after 1779 it was abandoned when the present A4069 was built c1819. Boulders of limestone demarcate the line of road which has long been downgraded to a bridleway.
