The complex series of routes into the valleys are visited from east to west. The Ely Valley to Penygraig is first, followed by the branch to Gilfach Goch. The Ogmore Vale and the Garw Valley come next. A long journey north from Bridgend takes us close to the Llynfi River and on to Glyncorrwg. Finally, we run east from Port Talbot across high ground to Maesteg and beyond.
