Port Talbot

A new year and more walks with the “Navigator”. As he was recovering from a minor rumbling tummy the walk would be flat and short but hopefully something new.

The plan was to drive to Briton Ferry,  ( some interesting facts on this link) use the bus pass and ride to the bus station in Port Talbot and walk back to the car.

Route

After parking the car we found a bus stop which showed some three regular buses but the one that came was not mentioned! However it did take us to the bus station in Port  Talbot.

A one stop family hairdressers!

We started to follow a cycle route towards the beach but there were on going road works which had closed that route but we wended our way through Sandfields and down to the beach at Aberavon.

Despite a stiff breeze blowing there were lots of people taking the air and walking dogs. We walked the length of the promenade and then down to the beach to continue walking towards the Avon Nedd. We had lunch in the dunes before turning to walk upstream through some Dr Who pipework and re joining the river to view an old dock network designed by Brunel (refer to the above Briton Ferry link).
