Heritage CoastOur Coast Was Made For Walking


Published 12 May 2014


Interest in the Heritage Coast jumped last week as Ramblers Cymru launched its Big Welsh Walk with a trek from Southerndown along the Wales Coast Path, which is celebrating its second anniversary.


The Big Welsh Walk seeks to encourage as many people as possible to take up walking, and with May being Love the Welsh Coast Month the Vale’s coastal paths are set to attract plenty of attention.


Angela Charlton, director of Ramblers Cymru, said: “During the Big Welsh Walk we’d like people to head out on walks all around Wales and experience the many benefits walking has to offer.


“Whether you are a keen walker or someone wanting to take their first steps into the activity, we have something suitable for everyone. People in Wales are just two feet away from a fabulous Big Welsh Walk.”


The coast also hit the headlines earlier this week after a rock stack was ‘discovered’ along the coast from Dunraven Bay, despite having been there for almost ten years.


Confusion aside however, some stunning pictures of the coastline were taken showing off the beauty of the Heritage Coast, and showing prospective ramblers exactly the sort of views they could be enjoying every day.


Lis Burnett, Cabinet Member with responsibility for tourism in the Vale of Glamorgan said: “The Vale of Glamorgan is blessed with a wonderful coastline with plenty of things to see and do. With Summer just around the corner there is no better time to get outside and enjoy our wonderful and varied coastline.”
