A guided walk to the Chartist Cave, also known by two Welsh names; Ogof Fawr (the ‘Big Cave’) and earlier as Tylles Fawr (the ‘Great Hole’). The more commonly used modern name “Chartist Cave” dates from 1839 when Chartist reformers used the cave to stockpile weapons in advance of their march on Newport on 4th November of that year. There is a plaque at the entrance to the cave commemorating the actions of the Chartists.

Welsh, French, German and English language speakers are welcomed. 

Arweinwyr: Steve Drowley a Richard Mitchley Gradd: Cymedrol

Sylwch: Cyngor i gerddwyr yw gwisgo bŵts cerdded, gwisg glaw, a dod â dwr a chinio pacio. Man cyfarfod yw tafarn Top House, Trefil.

Taith dywysedig i Ogof y Siartwyr, a adwaenir hefyd o dan ddau enw Cymraeg; Ogof Fawr (yr 'Ogof Fawr') ac yn gynharach fel Tylles Fawr (y 'Twll Mawr'). Mae'r enw modern mwy cyffredin, "Ogof y Siartwyr", yn dyddio o 1839 pan ddefnyddiodd diwygwyr Siartiaeth yr ogof i storio arfau cyn eu gorymdaith ar Gasnewydd ar 4 Tachwedd y flwyddyn honno. Mae plac ar ymyl yr ogof yn coffáu gweithredoedd y Siartwyr.

Croesewir siaradwyr Cymraeg, Ffrangeg, Almaeneg a Saesneg.
