Dulais (Neath): Crynant to Aberdulais

Grade 3 (4+)
Length 9 km
Paddleable medium to spate

in South Wales


Unremarkable grade 3 run. The hardest rapid is after an old railway bridge: a long steep grade 4. Takeout on river left before reaching Aberdulais Falls which would be a definite portage.

Water Levels

If the shingle banks are covered, it's good to go.

Takeout W3°46'36" N51°41'5"

Takeout near the A4109 bridge in Aberdulais (just off the main A465). From the bridge head a little way upstream up river left through a housing estate to find somewhere where you can access the river. To reach the putin head upstream along the A4109 and take a small turnoff to a bridge just north of Crynant.
