Cave
Access Permission should be sought from Blaen Nedd Isaf farm. The entrance is in a shallow depression a few metres South of the bridge across the Nedd Fechan.
Description A crawling entrance passage leads via an unstable boulder choke to a winding streamway rift into the main passage which ends in a sump. The sump is 50 metres long and leads to Little Neath River cave (Ogof Nedd Fechan). The cave is actually a part of the Little Neath River Cave.
