The Merthyr Mawr path, located between the rivers Ewenny and Ogmore, links the suspension bridge in Merthyr Mawr with the stepping stones crossing the Ewenny River, to land below Ogmore Castle. The path is used extensively by walkers and horse riders, but is prone to flooding during spring tides and gets extremely muddy. Many sections of the path had been damaged and parts of the walls had broken down, with large gaps allowing animals to get through. All of the walls needed repointing to avoid continued frost damage.
