1. After a pub, The Angel, followed by the Pontneddfechans Public Conveniences. Park somewhere in this area and take the parked footpath opposite the WC and behind The Angel Inn, through some metal gates onto a well made up path which runs next to the river Nedd Fechan. After about 20 minutes there is an iron bridge where the river, Pyrddin joins Nedd Fechan. Cross the bridge and follow the path to the left hand side of the River Pyrddin until you reach Horseshoe Falls. (The author has not walked the route from the bridge at the junction with the River Pyrddin to Horseshoe Falls). Go to *

* Lower Ddwli Waterfall is a short distance up the river and within site of Horseshoe Falls. Unless in heavy flood you can walk up the rock pavement. To view it more closely.
