The Tanat Valley Light Railway

In August 2019 my wife and I belated celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary by having a few days away. We chose to stay West of Llanymynech in the Welsh Borders.

While we were there we travelled the length of the Tanat Valley, following as closely as we could the route of the old Light Railway.

Much of the time on the journey we were looking across a couple of fields and noting a slight rise in the land along the line of the old railway!

We started the journey down the valley from Pennant Melangell and it's picturesque church. Intriguingly, there was a small museum in the church tower which included a number of things relating to the old Light Railway.

Sadly, we timed this excursion badly and were unable to visit the visitor centre at Nantmwr. It was closed in the days that we were in the area.

This post gives a great deal of background information about the line and the Tanat Valley. I hope, in the next post to follow the route of the line as best as possible.

You will note that one of the reference documents used is a GCE project report about Llangynog and the railway which I came across in St. Melangell's Church.
