John Ashley will give a talk on White Rock to Cymmer Afan and District History Society on Wednesday 4 June at 7pm. The venue is the English Methodist Chapel, directions below.
“If you are coming from Swansea the easiest was is along the M4 to junction 40, just after the speed camera. Down the slip road and turn left, following the road sign to
“A4107 Cymmer. Go along the road to the mini island, turn left and up the hill. Follow the road along the A4107 to Cymmer. Do not turn off this road.
“After about 8 miles, you will come into the village of Cymmer. On the left are some new houses, on the right a bowling green and tennis courts. A little further on the right is a bus turning circle and on the left Phil’s DIY. This is Brytwn Road. Follow the road along the flat then up the hill. At the top of the hill STOP. The road bears to the left, but you need to turn right, across the flow of traffic. In front of you is the swimming pool and on your left is the English Methodist Chapel, where we meet. Turn right up the hill and on your left is the entrance to the car park for the swimming pool, park in there (the car park not the swimming pool). Come out of the car park down the hill and cross the road.”
