Top 10 Walks: Wales Coast Path: Pembrokeshire North

Circular walks along the Wales Coast Path

by Dennis Kelsall

This photogenic book will take you on ten short circular walks along the northern part of the Pembrokeshire section of the Wales Coast Path.

Pembrokeshire’s north coast has a rugged and remote quality, reflecting the wildness of the hills that rise behind. It was largely ignored during the Norman colonisation and even today beyond St Dogmael’s there are only a handful of coastal communities.

Yet burial cairns, promontory forts and a pre-historic trackway across the Preseli Hills indicate widespread prehistoric settlement, and it was an important focus during the spread of Celtic Christianity. Fishing, farming and stock grazing were traditional ways of life, but the Industrial Revolution briefly opened coastal quarrying and the railway made Fishguard an important Irish port.

Today, it is a relative backwater but the coast has an untamed beauty, its flowers, birds, seals and porpoises making it a truly special place.

What they say …

The book is beautifully designed with a two column per page layout affording an easy read of the detailed walking routes. Having done several of these walks – or variations on them – I can attest to the detail in the route descriptions.
