Do not fall in

ogmore2.jpgOn the river below Ogmore Castle are some historic stepping stone crossing the river. A popular fording place for horse riders but those on foot can cross the river here safely (well fairly safely).

Ogmore Castle are the remains of a Norman stone-built castle, raised by the de Londres family. The initial earthwork castle was established by William de Londres, soon after 1100.
