From Maerdy farm back to Peterstone Gout
We are camping at Ty-coch, a small campground near the area known as Wentlooge between Newport and Cardiff. Back in 1607 a ‘Great Flood’ hit South Wales including these lowlands and the lowlands we walked from Chepstow to Newport, past Redwick and Goldcliff. Over 2000 were left dead by what some consider might have been a tsunami. Nearby is St Peterston church where it is said that people sought refuge from the waters. There is a flood mark on the wall of Redwick church which shows the level the water reached.
Here are some other photos we took today. To Anne in Calgary note the daffodils. The terrific storms that Wales has experienced recently has washed up some surprising things, including this toy horse! The peacock was a bonus!
