Here is a summary of the new walk:

Castle-upon-Alun and Coed-y-Bwl Nature Reserve

A hidden gem in the Vale of Glamorgan. A small woodland habitat that has a great deal to offer all year round. However, for real impact the Spring is the season to really appreciate the splendor of the place. It is in early spring that the magnificent Welsh wild Daffodils appear in all their glory. Late spring sees the emergence of the natural Bluebells. The atmosphere of the wood changes perceptibly with the changing seasons. This is also true of the flora and fauna. A wood full of light and colours from yellow and white to blues in one season; a wood dark and foreboding consisting of green hues in another season. The surrounding area can also boast some interesting man-made structures too.
