Cwm Hyddgen
Cwm Hyddgen
Hen heol yng nghwm anghysbell Afon Hyddgen a arferai cysylltu Ponterwyd a Machynlleth. Bellach mae hi wedi ei hisraddio i lwybr ceffyl ac mae hi bellach yn rhan o Lon Las Cymru, sef ffordd seiclo hirbell (250 milltir)sy'n dechrau yng Nghaerydd ac yn cwpla yng Nghaergybi. Y mynydd yn y pellter yw Pumlumon Fawr. Mae'r cwm yn enwog oherwydd i Owain Glyndwr drechu byddin o Saeson a Flemiaid yma ym Mehefin 1401.

Old road in the remote Hyddgen Valley which formerly linked Ponterwyd with Machynlleth. The road had been downgraded to a bridleway and it also forms part of the 250 mile long distance Cardiff - Holyhead cycling route known as Lon Las Cymru (The Welsh Green Lane). The mountain in the distance is Pumlumon Fawr. The Hyddgen Valley is also the site of a famous battle when a combined English and Flemish force was routed by Owain Glyndwr in June 1401.
