11 Mill Lane Mayals SA3 5BD GB

This walk starts at the top of Mill Lane where there is a small car park opposite Clyne Castle. There are two exits from the car park. If you walk out along the flat path at the back of the car park you can follow the winding track through woodland along a ridge which looks down to Clyne Bike Path and past a small stone bridge. The track can get muddy past this point in Winter when walking boots are recommended.

When you reach the end of the track (a few hundred yards uphill from the bridge) turn left up the hill and you will soon come to an unsurfaced road. Turn left here and follow this track back to the car park. In Spring there is an alternative route branches off this upper track (further up the hill, on the left from the car park) and will lead you up to a beautiful bluebell wood (you can see them through the trees). Following this track in an anticlockwise direction will lead you back to the top of Mill Lane and thus back to the car park. The bluebell wood is well worth a visit but closer to farmland so be aware of livestock if you take this route (although it is all fenced off).

For the toilets, or if you would like to add a walk around Clyne Gardens, you go back out through the car park to Mill Lane and back track to an entrance through an iron gate on your right just below the castle (dogs will need to be on a lead on the road). The toilets are down the main path on your left.

There are some lovely specimen trees including rhodendrons and azaleas here and in May there is a Clyne in Bloom event when you can also get refreshments at the bottom of the main path. There is also a pub just out through the bottom gate if you need something stronger (or a coffee at other times of the year) and the Junction at Blackpill is also just across the road with views of Swansea Bay.
