Sellack Bridge

There a two footpath options from Pengethley to Sellack Bridge, both approx. 2.5 miles. One going over field and past the historic Hentland Church, the other taking an easier approach on country lanes and bridleways. Sellack Bridge was built in 1895, replacing a ferry service. It links Sellack Boat (where the ferry was based) with Sellack Common, which is access land where you can feel free to wander, exploring the riverbank or maybe enjoying a picnic. Both walks also pass St Tysilio’s which is a 12th-century, grade 1 listed church.
