Coronavirus / Covid-19
Following recent changes in government advice regarding Covid-19 to avoid all non-essential travel and maintain social distancing, all walks and other activities are cancelled until the end of April.
We will continue to review the situation with regard to events beyond April. Further information can be found here, and will be udpated in due course.
This is an 8 mile circular moderate walk from Amroth to Saundersfoot.
**It can be shortened to 6 miles if weather is bad. Quite a lot of the walk is on hard surfaced paths like pavements, quiet roads and a cycle path which will be good if the winter has been particularly wet and Spring hasn't quite sprung yet!! Then there's a balance of some lovely wooded areas where it could be muddy, wet and slippery.
We start by walking through Colby Woodland Garden and through some beautiful woods crossing the road at Summerhill to enter another lovely woodland.
We emerge at Kilgetty Iron Works, an important industrial site, before dropping into Pleasant valley.
A climb up through yet another woodland and then on some quiet lanes takes us to Sardis and then St Issell's church and down through a caravan park to the seaside village of Saundersfoot, which served as a principal port for a thriving coal and iron industry.
We then follow the coast path on a former railway line and through a series of tunnels ** arriving at Wiseman's Bridge and then on a high path with great views before we descend quite steeply on steps back to the seafront at Amroth.
**These are quite dark inside. You may want to bring a torch or know where the light is on your phone.
Going from bright sunlight (which we will be!!!) into darkness can be a test for your 20/20 vision!!
There are one or two stiles on the longer version of this walk.
Please bring a packed lunch.
Refreshments at the end of the walk at Amroth.
Terrain / Difficulty
Ups and downs on the coast path and also ups and downs through woods, which could be wet and muddy.
