Ogmore Castle

Ogmore Castle

Ogmore Castle FPV Aerial Footage B4524, St Brides Major, United Kingdom The southeastern coastline of Wales is its most industrialized region, and contains its largest cities, Cardiff and Swansea. The portion of the M4 motorway that tracks through the south of Wales, from the Severn Bridge to just a few miles west of Swansea, offers dramatically contrasting vistas and some of the most chaotic traffic to be found in Wales, thanks to the never-ending construction and the never-ending factories. It comes as quite a shock, then, to discover that this is also an area full of interesting historic and prehistoric relics. Indeed, the region known as South Glamorgan takes you away from the hustle and bustle of modern living, and sweeps you back in time to the Middle Ages, to the time when the Normans ruled the land and planted castles to ensure their dominion.Bridgend sits about mid-way between Cardiff and Swansea, another, albeit smaller, city for the tourist to contend with, but one that is virtually surrounded by castles. To the east, Coity is part of a community of homes, and to the west are the castles of New Castle, Candleston, and Ogmore, built at the western limit of early Norman control. Of the latter three, the most impressive is Ogmore Castle, an extensive ruin settled along the lush grasses watered by the River Ewenny. www.castlewales.com Ogmore Castle - the best aerial videos
