A path leads past pretty St Cadoc church (look out for the ancient yew growing in the graveyard wall) down across lovely meadows to the river. There are beaches and a pool downstream. Upstream, beyond the railway bridge, are more pools and an island with deeper sections.

From the B4598 at Penpergwm, south-east of Abergavenny, signed The Bryn (dead end) over A40. Follow road to village end to find St Cadoc’s church past NP7 9AP, 51.7794, -2.9718. Also try the Clytha car park section of the Usk downstream near NP7 9AY, 51.7719, -2.9273.

    Strong current, but very clear and shallow. Get in by the up rooted tree stump and swim towards the bridge. See how close to the mini falls you can get before the current sends you back to your stuff
