Walk With Benji–Melyncourt Waterfalls

Melyncourt Waterfalls is a spectacular 80 feet high waterfall. It is located 1mile from the village of Resolven situated in the Neath Valley in S. Wales. A twenty minute drive away and the sun shining and it felt warm for Benji and I to explore this delightful  twenty minute walk.

The path, a casual slope, gently wound its way to the top. The brook bubbling,  gurgling  over rocks and boulders speeding its way down from the waterfall to end up in the River Neath, a little distance away.  At the start can be seen a couple of cottages with their gardens ending in a grassy slope. Here displayed an abundance of my favorite wild flower – the Primrose.  Trees showed the fresh green leaves. The water glistened in the afternoon sun. Much fauna could be seen, telling me with their freshness – yes Spring is arriving. Up in the trees birds could be heard calling to one another.

These are the photos taken that day.
