    We are now in a bit of a quandary because the only bus leaving here tonight seems to be the return working of the X2, yet it's not really late enough to settle for the night! Also the only place that this X2 will take us (that has a chance of an onward connection) is Bridgend Bus Station, which is precluded by the rules. I recommend that we take an early night and in the morning walk to John Street and catch the first bus out, which is the 06:35 Stagecoach South and West Wales service 63 to Derwen, opposite Sarn Sainsbury, where we arrive at 07:10 on Friday morning.

    Not that it remotely matters but the 63 is a First service not Stagecoach :)

    We then board the 0737 First South and West Wales service 74 to Nant-y-Moel (Court Coleman), arriving there at 0811 on Friday morning.

    It looks as though this is the only bus service to Nant-y-Moel so our best plan is to catch the 08:19 First South and West Wales service 74 to Sarn, Post Office where we arrive at 08:47 on Friday morning.

    Mindful of the seven minutes minimum connection time that applies at the station here, we decide to leave the buses for a while and we enter the station and board the 1055 West Midlands Trains service to Whitlocks End that arrives at 1130 on Saturday morning.

    There being apparently no bus stops within walking range, we take a look round Danzey Green before coming back to the station and waving down the 13:01 West Midlands train service 2S36 which picks us up and takes us to Stratford on Avon where we arrive at 13:23 on Saturday afternoon.
