Episode Summary

EDIT
Kenfig, Bridgend
AIRED:

Secrets of the dunes.

Eight hundred years ago the people of Kenfig on the south coast of Wales thought they had built the perfect town, nestled round a harbour with easy access to the sea and a sheltered position.

The town appears to have been a thriving commercial success but then it vanished, leaving just a few castle walls to mark its existence.

Extraordinarily, the ruins of the complete town are believed to still lie buried under the immense sand dunes that have covered the whole site since a series of violent storms lashed the coast over 500 years ago.

But even before the storms made life untenable in Kenfig, it seems that the Welsh locals weren't too keen on its Angle-Norman settlers. There are records of a series of attacks from early in the town's life.
