Members meet at the club and leave for Jersey Park at 6.30pm on Tuesday 26th July. A free car park is available close to the top entrance, near Ynysmardy Cemetary. The park closes at 8:00pm so be sure to return before the gates are locked.
The incline opposite the park entrance is the route taken by the unique railway line designed and constructed by Isambard Kingdom Brunel, which traveled from Glyncorrwg to Briton Ferry Docks during the last century. Much of it can be walked along and there are five bridges over the route as far as Cimla which are still intact. On the top of the hill are the industrial ruins of the old winding house.
In 1926, when the Earl of Jersey gave Jersey Park to the people of Briton Ferry, the Brunel railway became part of the local landscape – and remains so today. Jersey Park is an exceptionally well-preserved urban public park opened in 1925. Its original layout of formal and informal areas remains complete and includes sports facilities. Planting in the park is diverse and interesting, with an emphasis on evergreen trees and shrubs.
