Richard Burton walking trail opens
A new walking trail has recently opened to commemorate the Hollywood star, Richard Burton.
The trail starts at Burton's birthplace in Pontrhydyfen.
Visitors can then listen to the Oscar-nominated star quote a passage from Under Milk Wood, the play by his favourite poet Dylan Thomas who also has walks dedicated to him in Laugharne near Camarthen.
Signposts with facts about Burton's childhood and career are placed along the trail.
The Richard Burton Trail is a three mile (4.8km) walk around the villages of Pontrhydyfen and Oakwood, surrounded by the Afan Forest Park.
The trail was created by the council's tourism section with help from the Cwmavon Residents Action Group, Forestry Commission Wales and the Richard Burton Advisory Group at Swansea University.
