Walks, Cycle Trails and Other Activities

There are a number of walks in the locality including a walk to Taliaris Park Forest, Llyn Taliaris, and Taliaris Mansion.
Close by are the remains of the well-preserved Iron Age hillfort of Maes y castell. Maes y Castell is a reminder of the period over 2,000 years ago when such strongholds were built to defend people and property in a society characterised by warrior chieftains and war bands. There is a permissive path to the hillfort (2011) and the site is protected as a Scheduled Ancient Monument.

Salem Independent Chapel was built in 1817 and is still in use. During the 17th century, nonconformists escaped persecution by worshipping in farm buildings and at secret locations in the countryside. Salem chapel was built as a chapel of ease for the chapel at Capel Isaac, on land purchased when the Mynydd Bach common was enclosed.
