Walks for All Ages in the Vale of Glamorgan

Walks for All Ages in the Vale of Glamorgan

by: Hugh Taylor and Moira McCrossan
This book features twenty circular walks of up to 5 miles, suitable for all the family. They have been carefully chosen to give you an enjoyable day or half day in the countryside of the Vale of Glamorgan and Bridgend. The 'Basics' panel which accompanies each route will help you choose walks within your family's abilities and you can always work up to longer ones as your experience develops. Note too that the 'Start Point' information gives a postcode for satellite navigation users, although in a few cases, where this is in open countryside, these may be only approximate.

Each walk begins with a description of the local area, followed by fully detailed route instructions. Full colour Ordnance Survey 1:25000 scale Explorer mapping supports the text and there are snippets of useful information as you go along. The book also has lots of colour photographs throughout. At the beginning of each walk practical information listed includes distance, gradient, difficulty, approximate time, number of stiles, OS Explorer map number, path description, start point grid reference, parking information, suitability for dogs and local refreshment facilities and public toilets.
