River Ely




The River Ely is a small river in south Wales. Due to the poor access to the river along the majority of its length, it is not a very well known river.

The river is about 24 miles long and enters the western edge of Cardiff county from the rural lowlands immediately south of the M4 motorway. It passes the Museum of Welsh Life at St. Fagans and then continues through residential suburbs such as Pentrebane and Caerau and Ely before flowing into Cardiff Bay. Despite it being close to these densely populated settlements, major roads like the M4 motorway and the busy South Wales Main Line, it still retains a rural feel.

Ely Valley Trail
The Countryside Council for Wales has made studies into developing a footpath/cycleway beside the river with the proposed name of "Ely Valley Trail". The intended benefits: are to allow people from urban Cardiff easier access to the countryside; and for people in rural areas to have another commuting option into the city centre.
