Derelict

Corfe castle is best visited out of season as it is very much on the tourist trail, the path up to and through the castle is steep in places but requires no special footwear. Corfe castle is owned by the National Trust and charges a small fee - members go free.

Dunston Staiths on the River Tyne is considered to be the largest wooden structure in Europe. It used to be used to transfer coal by rail from the Durham coalfields and loaded from the Staiths onto ships waiting on the river.

Guy’s Hole is the middle fishing lagoon of the three along South Gare.

This bay is full of boats in varying states of repair, and surrounded as the others by fishermen’s huts.

Paddy’s Hole, South Gare is the largest of the fishing lagoons along South Gare.

There is parking adjacent to Paddy’s Hole, but if you are fortunate enough to be alone at the location be careful not to park in your compositions!

The ruins of the Magpie lead mines are a good visit for pretty much any weather conditions, I think the ruins lend themselves to bright sunny days, gloomy skies and sunrise/sunset.

Central Valley Wetland Area

Wetland nature reserve in Ebbw Vale.

This is a little known area of Ebbw Vale - I've been driving past it for years but never noticed it until the new road opened close by.

A fifteen minute walk along the River Severn brings you to a run down structure resembling an old goods carriage on the flood defences. I call it a fisherman's hut only because I can't think what else it could be used for.
