Coed Y Wallas
Castle Upon Alun, Mid Glamorgan

Coed-y-Wallas is a valley in which the River Alun flows, parallel to a railway line north of Castle upon Alun. The river passes under a railway arch to the northern end of the valley (Pont-yr-Brown), and the road fords the river nearby - the steps across the river here are called the Stepsau Ddion.

How to get here:

»

Road: M4 - Exit the M4 at junction 35, and then follow the A473 towards Bridgend. When you reach the roundabout with the A48, continue west (2nd exit), then turn left at the next roundabout onto the B4265 (Ewenny Road). Turn left onto Wick Road (B4524) and then continue along until you reach Heol y Stepsau. Follow this until you reach the ford. (6.5 miles, 12m) +
