Church, College & Lighthouse

This walk is really three walks in one. There is the complete walk named above of 9 miles but also two shorter walks within it. a western elliptical Llantwit Major walk of 3½ miles; a Marcross/St. Donats Circular of 5 miles. Whichever walk you do, you will be captivated by the magnificent Glamorgan Heritage coast with its cliffs and foreshore, and by the walks' nature reserves and ancient churches. On two of the walks St Donats Castle will engage your interest.

Distance: 9 or 3½ or 5 miles.
