Mysterious Margam Tour

This new tour features the lower historic core of Margam Country Park most of which was featured in Flog It on BBC 1 early June 2016. It looks at the mysteries and legends on this site from 1147 to date.

# Capel Mair (not visited on tour) why was it built. What was its purpose?

# The Chapter House probably the finest in the UK, what happened here, why was it used as a coal shed?

#The Infirmary and the monks curse in 1539. Did the curse really exterminate the Mansel male heirs?

# The Mansel House, where’s it gone, why are its gateposts alone still standing?

# Why was the Orangery, the longest in the UK, constructed? Why does it have bulls skulls on the front elevation?

# Why were the oranges allowed to die after over 200 years of nurturing?

# Why does simple Ivy Cottage have such a superb architectural pine end?

Tickets are limited, please book your place at the car park kiosk on arrival to the park
