The oldest and most historic part of Bridgend town is in the Newcastle Conservation Area grouped around the church and medieval fortress of Newcastle. Gazing down over the bridge from the top of the hill is the remains of this Norman Castle with its cluster of tiny cottages and houses, and surrounded by terrific views. Halfway up the hill is the Church House known locally as St. John’s Hospice.
