Medieval Ruins In Wales! – Sunday Vlog Roundup | Week 17

I’ve been neglecting my Sunday Vlog Roundups due to busyness, but I’m pleased that I have at least kept up my storytelling. This does mean that there are now three videos for your perusal.

Chepstow Castle, One of a Kind? – CADW Challenge #3

We explore 11th-century Chepstow Castle as the third of our Cadw Challenge films.

Tretower Court and Castle CADW Challenge #4

Tretower Court and Castle is a fourteenth-century medieval fortified manor house sitting alongside the twelfth-century, Tretower Castle.

For our fifth CADW Challenge, we check out the ruins of the 12th-century Tintern Abbey.

The Sunday Vlog Roundup is a list of videos detailing what I’ve been up to in my vlogger’s life. Our channel name is Something Vloggy, and I create the films with my other half, Ian.

Technically this is two weeks worth; because last week got busy and I forgot what day of the week it was. Easily done these days.

Sunset From The Skirrid

We climbed The Skirrid, a 486m tall mountain, also know as Ysgryd Fawr (which loosely translates to big shaky).

What’s Left of This Iron Age Promontory Fort? Chepstow Bulwarks Camp – CADW Challenge #1

We have started an epic journey in the form of our CADW Challenge. We plan to visit and film all 130 properties in the care of CADW. This is the first one!

Chepstow Bulwarks Camp is an Iron Age Promontory Fort in Wales. We check both it and its history out.

Chepstow Port Wall, What Is It and Why Is It Here? – CADW Challenge #2

Chepstow Port Wall is a strange and wonderful thing to have scattered through a city, both looking as if it belongs, and at the same time completely out of place.

The Chepstow Port Wall walk is the second of our Cadw Challenge films. It’s a wall that once surrounded the town of Chepstow.

Check out The Friday Show HERE

If you found yourself wondering why there were no waterfalls this week then the answer lies here, along with what we’ve been up to and what’s to come in this weeks Friday show.

On Thursday There Were Squirrels!

Ian has taken to feeding the Squirrels peanuts, and now they’re getting quite cheeky. Ian made a quick film featuring Sally and Cinnamon Squirrel. Sid did not make an appearance for this particular video.

Watch Squirrels Eating HERE

Ian started to feed a squirrel, now there are three regulars, Cinnamon, Sally, and Sid. Cinnamon and Sally agreed to be filmed today.

On Saturday There Were Fox Cubs!

We set up another YouTube channel called Something Extra in which we’ll be posting anything that doesn’t can’t go on the Something Vloggy Channel. This week our first post was about some Fox Cubs. We realised we should have put the squirrel video up there too, but we hadn’t thought about Something Extra by that point.

We woke up to three fox cubs playing on our garden. Quickly grabbed a camera and this is the result.

Monday We Visited Ogmore Castle!

We never did find any Ogs, or find out what an Og was, but we did nearly get stranded because when the tide comes it covers the carpark.

We explored the Castle of Ogmore, a ruin in Wales overlooking the River Ewenny.

Wednesday We Went Back to the Caerfanell River to Hunt for More Waterfalls

This is our 4th, and hopefully penultimate, trip up the Caerfanell river. It has so many beautiful waterfalls, cascades, and plunge pools (of all sizes) that we frequently lost track of time there.

We continue seeking out and filming the beautiful waterfalls of Caerfanell.

And Then There Is The Friday Show!

The Friday Show allows us to chat a bit about the behind-the-scenes of the videos, and lets you know what’s coming up. In this episode, we chat about our upcoming challenge, that we’re calling the CADW Challenge.  I have to admit we have our work cut out for us, and we have yet to begin!

In which we take the opportunity to catch up with you guys, and let you know what we’re up to, and talk about the behind-the-scenes of filming at Ogmore Castle and the Caerfanell River.
