Cistercian Way (Wales)

969 km / 602 miles

Caerphilly, Carms, Ceredigion, Conwy, Denbighs, Gwynedd, Herefs, Mons, Neath PT, Pembrokes, Powys, Rhondda CT, Shrops, Torfaen, Wrexham
The Cistercian Way is more than a long-distance path: it is a walk into the heart of Wales. Explore the great abbeys of the Cistercian order, the little churches of the Welsh hills, the amazing geology of the Pembrokeshire coast, Stone Age burial mounds, medieval castles and sheep-farms, picturesque landscaped gardens and the industrial heritage of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.

From Cymmer you can follow the Roman road, Sarn Helen, virtually all the way to Conwy.

Route notes are on the website below but there is no paper publication (as at April 2015).
