The Ford sidings, which sit at the end of a freight only line, are situated a couple of miles South East of Bridgend station.

By Car - From the M4, leave at junction 35, taking the A473 signposted Bridgend. After passing over two islands, take the 1st exit at the 3rd roundabout, and follow the A48 Crack Hill. About 50 yards after passing the entrance to the golf range, there is a public footpath sign on your left. This is situated where the white road chevrons ends. 200 yards past here, on your left, park up in front of the blue gates. On returning to the footpath, turn right, and it will bring you out adjacent to the sidings. From here, the shunter ( if one present ) should be seen in the Ford complex.

By Rail - Alighting at Bridgend, turn left ( Court Road ) and down the hill to the main road. From here, turn left into Derwen Road and continue along past the shops until you reach the Wilkinsons store. Turn right into Nolton Street and follow along up until the traffic lights. At this point, turn left onto the A473 Crowbridge Road and continue along to the roundabout junction with the A48 Crack Hill. Then proceed past the level crossing, to where the public footpath is on your left.     Walking Time - approx 45 mins.
