Last month we made a trip to the Dan yr Ogof caves in South Wales. Needless to say this was a great day out and the little’ns enjoyed themselves. I used a simple Samsung J5 for the pictures I took that day, simply because I did not want to be lugging a camera around the caves with kids in tow.

My first visit to the caves was when I was quite small as a visitor from over the border. In those days Wales seemed a bit further away as the roads were slower and so were the cars. Nowadays I live and work in Glynneath – just around the corner from the caves.

There is a short uphill walk to the cave entrance from the car park. Admission fees are ok and the cafe is close by the entrance. So we went to the cafe.

Once refreshed we followed the pathway to the first of the caves. There is a useful map provided on the way in which we used to navigate.

Some of the models you see as you walk around are quite impressive and even a little intimidating – this is my favourite.

Loved these models

 

 

 

On the way out we stopped for a coffee. The coffee was good! They have a good selection of hot and cold snacks too.

Overall a very enjoyable day out. The pictures in the caves did not work well so if you want to see those visit the showcaves website.

Should you come by on a visit please drop into our wool shop in Glynneath or visit Saturn Films 1969 to get your old photo collection digitised.
