Melincourt Waterfall is a really easy, relatively straightforward walk and a sight to behold! It’s lesser known than some of the other waterfalls in the area as it doesn’t fall under the Brecon Beacons National Park. In Welsh, it’s called “Sgwd Rhyd Yr Hesg” – what a mouthful eh?! Nestled in the tiny village of Resolven, Vale of Neath. Postcode: Neath SA11 4AP

Tucked away in deep west Wales is a tiny village with a giant history! The village is Nevern and there you’ll find a mysterious bleeding tree (!) surrounded in mystery. When you visit be sure to see: 1. The Norman church of St Brynach 2. A miraculous 700 year old bleeding yew tree in the churchyard! 3. The remnants of a motte and bailey castle above the village and an ancient bridge 4. The Pilgrims Cross – associated with the pilgrim route to St Davids. It is carved into the rock face and look out for the footprints! Which bleeding yew tree legend is your favourite? Let me know in the comments!

IMPORTANT INFORMATION: DO NOT take any trees from the Kilvey area without permission from Swansea City Council. The council allow only a small area to be thinned on *one day* each year to make way for more native species. We’re proud to say that we were involved with over 800 native species planted in 2019! We want to see the area continue to thrive with a gentle rebalancing of the natural ecology. Kilvey Hill has a wonderful walk with panoramic views of Swansea and Aberavon from the top.
