To do list

I’ve compiled a list of tunnels that need to be explored.  This is, of course, in addition to the huge list of mountains that need to be climbed; the weather’s not the best for this at the moment though, and I’ve got a cold.  Please inform me of any other tunnels in the south Wales valleys area that I’ve omitted from this list, e-mail address is in the info and contact section, and also contact me if you’d like any further information on any of these tunnels in the meantime!

Talyllyn tunnel, Talyllyn

Wenvoe tunnel, Culverhouse Cross

Garth tunnel, Ffynnon Taf

Rhymney tram tunnel, Rhymney

Rhymney river tunnel, Llechryd

Abertridwr tunnel at top rock (reportedly there, I’ve yet to confirm its existence)

Clydach tunnels, Clydach gorge

Gellifelen tunnels, Clydach gorge,

Gyfylchi tunnel, Afan valley

Maesteg tunnel, Maesteg

Gelli tunnel, Cymer (Only tiny)

Cymer tunnel (Gwdihw), Cymer

Rhondda Tunnel, Blaenrhondda (This is the big one.  The end-of-level-boss of tunnels)

That’s twelve tunnels, but I seem to be finding more every day.  With the help of the followers of this website, perhaps I can create an exhaustive list of all the tunnels to be found in and around the valleys…

Morlais Tunnel / Miler Tunnel

Finally got round to visiting this nearby tunnel yesterday, and wish we’d gone sooner! Read the full report and see the photos here.

Cefn Glas tunnel revisited!

I went on an impromptu outing to find the other end of this crumbling tunnel.  Read the report and see the pictures here!
