Photographer's Note

Set in 850 acres of glorious parklands, Margam Country Park offers beauty, history, wildlife and a wide range of facilities to make it one of the best family days out in Wales. It has surprises around every corner, from the magnificent 18th Century Orangery, an impressive Tudor-Gothic style Victorian Mansion House and a 12th Century Chapter House, to the unique Fuschia Collection and the newly restored historic gardens around the Castle, the Monastic Gardens and Orangery Terrace.

My brief note cant possibly explain the fascinating history of this place. Margam Abbey used to be regarded as one of the most important places in Wales. Its now mostly ruins since the dissolution of the monasteries between 1536 and 1540.

There are frequent spook groups who like to hold sleep overs at Margam Park, looking for ghoulish activity.
I get the creeps walking around here in the day, but I like to snatch a photo when I`m passing.
