Field trip – Aberthaw & Gileston

There’s a field trip next Weds, 19th Feb to the above. Parking is rather limited for east Aberthaw unless you use the Blue Anchor carpark which I am reluctant to do as it’s a popular pub/restaurant and we will be running past lunch time. So I suggest meeting in the gravel car park on the west side of the power station, down past Gileston village. Easiest access, to avoid a very narrow lane, is to go past the petrol station on the B4265 and turn left at the St Athan crossroads into Gileston Road [it’s the next left after the garage]. Follow this down into Gileston village where you need to turn right, sign posted Beach. Just follow this along to the end where there’s a gravel car park by the west flank of the power station. I suggest meeting there at about 10 a.m.. We can explore there a bit then walk along in front of the power station to the East Aberthaw end. It can be very muddy so bring appropriate footwear. I will not be picking up at St Margaret’s Rd as it’s in the opposite direction! Plse let me know if you are coming. Here’s a link to a map – the orange arrow is where to park:
