River Clywedog
A favourite walk of Lady Bagot of Pool Park was from Bontuchel to Rhewl along the shady path on the craggy banks of the Clywedog and went over the bridge at Rhydycilgwin. One writer tells us, "This glen is a bit of wild scenery seldom equalled, forcibly reminding the tourist of Dovedale, but with a vastly more pictureque landscape bounding on the horison," and another says, "Beautiful to extreme and surpasses Bettws-y-Coed, or any other place for rustic scenery". Lady Bagot's drive runs the whole length of this valley.
