This week a gentleman called Chris contacted us via our website in the hope of organizing a guided walk. Having previously joined us on a 4mile walk he brought along members of St Peters Church in Hampshire who have been walking the Brecon Beacons over the weekend.With an interest in a guided tour of the Iron Age Hillfort, one of our expert walk leaders took the group this morning to the fort, which is an area of about seven acres enclosed by a massive bank, which would have been topped by a wooden fence, a ditch and another smaller bank is established on Mynydd-y-castell. The hillfort was occupied by the Silures, an Iron Age tribe, who fought with the Romans from 48AD until 70AD

Thank you to our wonderful tour guides who took two groups on a fascinating tour of the Castle today. We had a group of 29 join us all the way from Carmarthen who thoroughly enjoyed and couldn't compliment our guides enough!

Fun Fact Friday: Started in April 1982 and completed in November, the Maze that once stood Margam Country Park covered an acre of land.
Thought to be the largest and most complicated in the world. Over 500 tons of stone was used for the paths, 5 miles of wire for fencing, 1 cwt of staples, 1 mile of string to support the trees and 1500 wooden pegs to secure them to the ground was used in the construction.
Altogether there were 3250 trees in the maze, 3000 cypressocyparis castlewellan (Gold) and 250 cypressocyparis leylandii (Dark Green)
Who remembers the maze?
