This bustling market town may well have taken its name from a 15th century bridge spanning the River Ogmore. The structure had to be rebuilt in the 18th century and is now a listed building.
The town developed as a river crossing for Middle Age pilgrims but prior to that the site had been chosen by the Normans as the location for castles either side of the Ogmore. Only one castle remains and casts an eerie shadow over the area.
One of Bridgend’s most interesting buildings is the Hospice of the Knights of St. John (from which developed The Order of St John and then St John Ambulance), a 15th century church house used by the pilgrims.
