The Dipping Bridge Merthyr Mawr
The Dipping Bridge Merthyr Mawr

At the entrance to Merthyr Mawr village is the 'Dipping Bridge' built in the 15th century with holes in the parapets where farmers once pushed reluctant sheep into the River Ogmore for a seasonal dip!
At the side of the bridge once stood an Inn where the landlord would rob and murder travellers en route to St. David’s shrine.

Granny Smith

Originally a deer hunting forest in Norman times, Ashdown Forest is now one of the largest free public access space in the South East. It is a great place for walking and enjoying spectacular views over the Sussex countryside and is known the world over as the 'home' of Winnie-the-Pooh.
The Forest is at the heart of the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and has national and international protection because of its wildlife. Nearly two thirds of its 6500 acres (2500 hectares) are heathland, amounting to 2.5% of the UK's extent of this rare habitat.
