Llanwrtyd Community Transport provide three main types of transport, regular Shoppa Buses, individual journeys for medical appointments and the like, and monthly outings to places of interest.

The services of our organisation are for everyone, not just our older residents and people with special needs, here at Llanwrtyd Community Transport we recognise the need of local people to get out and about, and that our public transport system is limited.

Monthly Outings 

Stop Press!!!

Our next outing is to Brecon on Tuesday October 8th where we plan to visit the Cathedral which is a beautiful building well worth a look around, eat in in Pilgrim’s Tea Rooms then go onto the Regimental Museum of the Royal Welsh Guards. The cost for transport is £10 per person, entry to the Cathedral is free but donations are much appreciated and entry to the Museum is £5 per person.

If you would like to book a place on this outing, or have any ideas for other venues to visit, please call John on 07956 091242.

 

Twelve of us (plus John our Driver) had a lovely outing to Talgarth Mill on August 20th 2019, the weather was very kind to us, and we were able to begin with lunch in the Bakers Table Café where the food is somewhat delicious.

Talgarth Mill stopped turning in 1946, but the local community were determined to see it in action once more. In May 2010 they received lottery funding to restore the 18th Century Watermill to full working order.

    

    

Today flour from Llowes is milled four times a week and bread baking takes place on five days a week. The mill is well worth a visit, with its delightful café, craft shop and peaceful grounds where seasonal vegetables and flowers are grown, and you can see the waterwheel scooping up the water from the River Ennig.

Craft work by local artisans can be seen and purchased from the craft shop, plus freshly baked crusty bread, freshly ground flour and bread kits can be purchased from the café. We were taken on a tour of the mill by Rob, one of the many volunteers who keep the mill running. 

                

 

We had a lovely trip to the Thomas Shop Museum in Penybont on July 3rd, and the weather was glorious! It was a real step back in time seeing all the old haberdashery and curios and is definitely worth a visit if you are in the area!

 

            

 

May 29th 2019 was the outing to Myddfai Farmers Market and Ystrad Nurseries. Eleven people took opportunity to travel with us, the weather wasn’t good, but that didn’t spoil the outing.

    

Here are some photos of our party enjoying refreshments at Myddfai and deciding which plants to buy at the nursery.                                                                                                                                                                              

    

 

Our first day out of the season had to be rescheduled from March 27th until April 10th to the Old Railway Line Garden Centre at Three Cocks, Brecon. Although the weather started off poor, the sun soon came out and stayed with us all day.

We were a party small in number, but never the less, everyone who went thoroughly enjoyed themselves and are looking to the next day out.

                   

 

                             

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                

We provide random day outings as suggested by our users, and in the past have been to various garden centres, and open gardens such as the Water Gardens at Pembroke, Elan Valley, Tenby and the Walled Gardens at Presteigne, home to Dame Margaret Anstee. Again, please make contact with Laura or Ann with your suggestions or for information about any planned outings already arranged.
