2014 The Visitors Tour

18/5/2014

 

The MMOC Motley Crew 

This year saw the South Wales Branch hosting guests members from the North East Branch, Bridlington & the Wolds and Lincolnshire. aptly named the Motley Crew.  If it wasn't for these people and many others behind the scenes many of our big MMOC events could go ahead.  So  a long weekend was planned with a view to what we in wales have to offer.The tour started on a blisteringly hot Saturday morning just outside Newport.  We paid a short visit to Tredegar House, before heading up through Careleon, Pontypool and stopping off at Blaenavon & Big Pit for a tour around and some lunch at the Pit Head Baths Café.  We continued on from there across the heads of the valleys to Merthyr Tydfil and Cyfartha Castle.  Leaving there we travelled down the Cardiff Road on route back to Newport.
