Over 400 vehicles on display on Barry Island's Promenade.
Learned to drive in one. If you are wondering what the panda is doing sitting in front of the Morris, it is a reference to the nick name these cars were given in the 1960s. Why panda?

To the south, the Bristol Channel. That is a range of well over 50 miles.
The Ordnance Survey post, now clearly obsolete, on the common is at 355 mt, 1165 ft. That is the wonder of the Valleys, so many of these easy to access 360 panoramic views. Must remember to take a decent image of the east and west views on our next visit for completeness sake.

A fun read which prompted me to label all our train experiences here on this blog. See 'Trains' at the foot of this entry. The result, 25 posts on trains!! The book is more about the countries and the people met on Tom's rides than the trains and thier engines. Some of his people meetings chimed with our own. 4 on the door for Chesshyre.
