"Valeways is at the very heart of the Vale of Glamorgan, keeping open the arteries of this beautiful landscape - such and important part of our heritage.

With community volunteers, they work to give access to over 400 miles of pathways a year; their walks are always fascinating, and a pleasure for everyone, of all ages and abilities.

I’m delighted to be a Friend of Valeways - I hope you will join us.”

Derek Brockway, Honorary President
