White discs with letter M and name in arrow (replacing purple discs)Valeways Millennium Heritage Trail


105 km / 65 miles
A circular route around the Vale of Glamorgan through landscapes of historical and scenic interest, with inland and coastal sections.

Valeways is also producing a series of new full colour leaflets describing circular walks in the area of 3-8 miles, in conjunction with the Vale of Glamorgan Council. Around 30 of these are available from local libraries and tourist information points and as downloadable route leaflets on the Valeways website. Many of these walks overlap with the Trail and greatly extend the range of options for sampling a section in a circular walk.

The 14-mile Glamorgan Heritage Coast provides a coastal route of ecological diversity taking in rocky and sandy beaches, sand dunes and cliffs.
