Merthyr Mawr Sand Dunes nr Bridgend
The present warren is all that is left of what was once the Largest Sand Dune Complex In Britain, stretching along the coast to Mumbles. The warren is an important wildlife habitat and site of scientific interest, which shelters a rich variety of plants. Parts of the Hollywood blockbuster Lawrence of Arabia were filmed here.
More excitingly you can sled down the enormous dunes at quite decent speeds, sometimes there are even people there selling them but it's best to pick up your own beforehand to be sure, this isn't something you want to miss.
The postcode given is for satnav to get you close but please do plan your journey independently.
