We drive into the Vale of Neath to the first of our four waterfalls at Aberdulais, which offers a unique blend of natural beauty and social history. It has long been a favourite visiting place for artists, writers and travellers.
Next we visit Melincourt, a spectacular and beautiful, 80 feet single drop waterfall, painted by Turner in 1794.
