National Cycle Network
The National Cycle Network (NCN) is a series of cycling and walking routes throughout the UK covering approximately 6,500 miles. There are 9 National routes covering England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland which have branch routes linked to them and are supplemented by regional routes. National Route 4 of the NCN connects London to St. David’s on the west coast of Wales, with branches numbered in the forties. The section of Route 4 across South Wales from the old Severn Bridge at Chepstow, to Fishguard in the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, is known as the Celtic Trail. It is this section of NCN Route 4 which runs through Bridgend County Borough from Blackmill in the East, to Pyle in the West. There are also a number of Community Routes within the county borough which provide links to the NCN. Further information on the NCN is available from the council’s Rights of Way section using the contact details below, or from Sustrans.
