What clothing is required?
It is recommended to wear appropriate footwear, (e.g. good walking boots/shoes and socks). It is wise to carry extra clothing such waterproofs and a jumper as the weather can change very suddenly, especially on higher ground.
On a long walk you should bring enough food and drink with you for a number of breaks, less on a shorter walk.

The usual meeting place for the Sunday walk is the Maesteg Town car park, Wednesday walk at Tesco park you can use your own transport or you can arrange to be picked up and taken there.
