Morfa Beach / Margam Sands added to Beaches and Seaside Resorts in Wales by stubbyd on 14/11/2020

This is a lovely long stretch of beach that is popular with dog walkers, and occasional kite board surfers. But it is usually fairly deserted at start and end of day. There are two shipwrecks depending on tide (and I strongly advise checking otherwise there will be no beach). From my mark, you can go left for one, and right for the other, and I will post a separate location for the HMV Altmark. The attached image shows my drone looking right from the footpath towards the steel works.

There are, as you will have walked through it, a large train yard here. From teh right location you can get good shots of goods wagons, etc..

The point I have marked is where the footpath comes out that you get to by leaving the M4 at Junction 38 and taking an immediate left if heading West. Follow that road all the way down to the train tracks and park up. Then cross the lines, and keep going straight. When the road starts to curve you will see a footpath by a fence and then the beach - approx a mile and 20m good walk.

The beach is also accessible from Kenfig Nature Reserve (see another of my locations) and runs all the way from Nottage to the old docks at Port Talbot - all told, just short of 7 miles of sand.

Uley Bury Hillfort (By clinkadink)

Parking was in a lay-by on Fort Road, South of the hillfort. TOAL was from the top.

Uley Bury is a sub-rectangular Iron Age bivallate hill-fort. There are three entrances to the fort, the main one in the north. The earthwork is mutilated in places by later quarrying. Finds from the camp include a Dobunic gold stater, a quern of Roman date and a bronze mask. Trial excavations at the east entrance in 1976 also found an Iron Age metalled road, pottery, a bronze ringheaded pin, penannular brooch and currency bars, as well as a crouched burial. Internally aerial photographs show cropmarks which represent an extensive settlement, with rectilinear enclosures and round houses (seen as ring ditches). An extensive collection of flint artefacts, also found at the hillfort, points to an extensive pre-Iron Age settlement at Uley Bury.

Uley Long Barrow (By clinkadink)

Parking and TOAL was from a lay-by off the B4066, South East of the site.

Uley Long Barrow is a partially reconstructed Neolithic chambered mound. It is 37 metres long and overlooks the Severn Valley. It's known locally as Hetty Pegler's Tump, after Hester Pegler who owned the land in the 17th century.

The barrow as seen today is largely the result of the excavation and reconstruction undertaken by Dr John Thurnham in 1854 and subsequent repairs in 1871, 1891 and 1906.
