Bryngarw Country Park and the Garw Valley


Sculpture #2, originally uploaded by e_cathedra.

Jjust off the M4 near Bridgend, well worth a day out. Interesting sculptures, mature woodland, trails, events throughout the year and the gateway to the Garw Valley, certainly off the beaten track country. From Bryngarw Country Park you can cycle the Valley on a family cycle route that takes in the best of this little heard of yet stunning valley. Head towards Llangeinor and its historic settlement on the hill, overlooking the places that inspired the Welsh hymn Calon Lan, known to all Welsh people the world over! There is even a parc dedicated to the hymn at the top of the Valley in Blaengarw called Parc Calon Lan. Bryngarw Country Park surrounds the Bryngarw Country House which is great place to stay in this part of the world too!
