Clogau Mill-Vigra Tramway

The old tramway from the Clogau Mill at Vigra Bridge, past Jenny's Adit and up to Vigra mine used to be a pleasant stroll, but no longer, at least in its lower section (I gave up at Jenny's). It is a post-apocalyptic tangle of brambles and briars as I discovered yesterday. Many members may know this already, but if not and thinking of using this once popular route - avoid!

PS - nothing to see at Clogau either. It looks like a Rewilding experiment.
