Vale of Glamorgan
These walks show approximate elapsed times for someone walking briskly in fair conditions without stopping. It will take you longer if you stop for breaks, are walking in a group or if it is wet or muddy underfoot. For example the Wick walk can be covered in 3 hours but a group of 12 of us took 4 hours 25 minutes in early March.
