This area is given over to the Garw Valley ' Watering Holes ' . For a short distance of about 3 miles which is not very heavily populated we are spoilt as we has a good number of Pubs and Clubs and here is set out the watering holes that are left in the valley. Some of the Hostelries have disappeared but here is a snapshot in 1999.
