Loops and Links

Loops and Links within Caerphilly County Borough is a strategy to improve access from the National Cycle Route 47 to the towns and villages along its route.
Clear directional signs giving distances, cycling and walking times and indicating the facilities in the local villages have been provided.
Community artwork, involving schools and local residents with artist Michael Disley, has been a major part of the strategy. In addition, the artist created six sculptures featuring local historical references which were selected from eighteen designs presented to the local residents.

Raven Walk

A 14 mile circular walk around the Sirhowy and Ebbw Valleys, Caerphilly County. The walk mainly follows footpaths, bridleways and cycleways, including some steep climbs, woodlands, farmland and hilltops. It passes through Risca, Cwmcarn and Ynysddu on the floor of the valleys, Mynyddislwyn on the ridge between them, and ascends Mynydd Machen on the ridge above Risca. There are four metal sculpture of ravens along the route. There are discrepancies between the current and older OS maps for some short sections of the designated route.
