By Bus The bus route from Mold visits the villages before arriving at the terminus in Pantymwyn. The service to Mold and beyond leaves hourly, on the hour from Pantymwyn.
Please note: An experimental “Do NOT use SAT-NAV” sign is erected in Gwernaffield. This is to prevent large vehicles going beyond the bus terminus in Pantymwyn. Please be advised that SAT-NAV directions on any other routes than the ones listed above will lead you through extremely narrow, winding, and single track roads, and should be negotiated only with extreme caution.
This is a farming area, and animals may be on the narrow lanes.
