Parc Slip nature reserve, Wales


A nature reserve and popular dog walking spot not far from the M4 Jct36. The reserve is over a former colliery, where a gas explosion became a major disaster in 1892. Today it's a lovely place to take a quiet walk and enjoy the sounds and sights of the increasingly large bird and insect populations.


Getting there From Junction 36 of the M4, at the roundabout take the exit onto the A4063 towards Maesteg. Go through two sets of traffic lights, then at the roundabout, take the second exit onto the B4281 (signposted Aberkenfig and Pyle), following the brown duck tourist sign for Parc Slip. After approximately one mile, turn right at the Fountain Restaurant onto Fountain Road, still following the brown duck signs. Parc Slip Nature Reserve and Wildlife Trust Visitor Centre is on your left after approximately half a mile. Please be aware that the sat navs may direct you onto New Road. The Visitor Centre is located on Fountain Road (signposted Fountain).


Signed walks and access trails through the nature reserve.  They ask that dogs are kept on leads to protect the wildlife. Extending leads are allowed.
