9 mile walk,steady climb from Llwyngwril on a drovers track for a couple of miles, good views all the way, dry underfoot on ffridd, excellent views over Barmouth Bay. Gradual descent to Fairboune via hanging oak woodland passing the Blue Lake. Lunch in Fairbourne. The walk contues along the prom then a dry path through the saltmarsh to Morfa Mawddach Station and the toll footbridge in to Barmouth.

Overall a very pleasant walk, graded as moderate, comfortably achieved within the time available for train connections.

TRAIN WALK
Aberystwyth to Llanrhystud.
This is a superb walk, only one hard section and that is the climb out of Aberystwth, but this is easily managed by stopping a couple of times to admire the view, the climb does not require any holding on, steps have been cut to make it very much easier. The rest of the walk is easy / moderate. Overall 10 miles, constant sea views and superb wildlife.
MEET AT WELSHPOOL STATION 7.30
Timings: Outward Welshpool 07:42; Aberystwyth 09:20, started walk at 09:45.
Walk completed 16:00 at Black Lion, Llanrhystud, Bus 16:33 Aberystwyth 16:57.

Trains back to Welshpool at 17:30; 18:32 and 19:30.

I suggest that on return to Aberystwyth members decide individually as to which train to catch. The 18:32 and 19:30 have far fewer passengers. Len.

128th SeptemberKittiwake Walks - Meifod. Walk No. 5. Route: Meifod to Coed-Cowrhyd, Dolobran and Healing Well. The route is along lanes, tracks and footpaths.
This replaces the original Llangynog walk as Brian found, on the recce, it was too difficult because of the height and density of the undergrowth.

Parking at Morfa Mawddach Station. "Weather permitting there are some lovely views looking down on the estuary and is likely to be a little wet underfoot in places if the rain keeps falling for the rest of the week.
Don’t forget the bus passes. See you Sunday. Graham."
