Pengam to Peterstone Wentlooge

dragon shell 2Rivers, parks, canals,bridges and sea-walls all feature in this walk. To reach the sea-wall at Rhymney Great Wharf and the estuary, we travelled over the River Rhymney, through Tredelerch Park, then along a canal. The River Rhymney runs into the Severn Estuary, having made its journey from the Brecon Beacons. The Severn is the longest river in the UK and has one of the highest tidal ranges in the world. It is a boundary between Wales and England; the north Somerset coast looks very close on a sunny day. On the day I walked this stretch it was very clear. I was also able to see the two Severn Bridge crossings. The tide when out leaves huge expanses of mud-flats and salt marches. Both the park, canal and salt marshes are a haven for wildfowl, some of which are mentioned in the walk.
