Thursday 5 July 2018: Northern Perimeter Castlemartin Range Walk

Details:  This linear walk was created a couple of years ago by the MOD/PCNPA to permit off-road walking around, and at places, in, the northern perimeter of Castlemartin West Tank Firing Range.  The walk starts at the wonderful, wild Freshwater West beach, then branching inland, taking in views west to the Islands, north to the Preselis, and south across the Range.  An opportunity to see the whole Tank Range is afforded at a specially constructed viewing site, and with luck there may be a tank ‘battle’ under way. A surprisingly interesting inland, easy, level, walk. (NB. This is not the walk that can be arranged with National Park Authority, through the Range itself).  SORRY, NO DOGS.

Distance: Approximately 7.5-8.0 miles. Wear boots and appropriate gear.

This walk is graded as ‘Easy

Start location and Timing: Meet at Bosherston NT Car Park at 10:00 hrs. (OS Map reference SR 967 948) Parking charge, but free for NT members (bring NT membership cards). Car share to Freshwater West to commence walk, therefore only two per car initially, please. Cars will ferry people back to Bosherston at the end of the walk. The walk should finish by 15:30 hrs.

Meals:
Bring a packed lunch, water and refreshments as required. At the end of the walk we can visit the Bosherston pub, café or hostelry en-route to Pembroke.
