22 February 2018: The Last Invasion Anniversary Walk

Details: A 5km circular walk from Llanwnda Village, to the French landing grounds at Carregwasted and back, via Trehowel Farm, the French headquarters. At Llanwnda you can still see the Welsh bible, part burned by the cold and hungry French troops. Then it’s a short car ride to Goodwick Sands, where the French surrendered and after lunch in the Royal Oak (optional), where the surrender was negotiated, we’ll visit the commemorative tapestry and then Jemima Nicholas’ headstone. And finally, we will drive round to Fishguard Fort to see where the first shot was fired.

This walk has been assessed as ‘Easy’.

Timings and Meeting Point: Llanwnda Village at 10:00
