Details: This 7 mile walk along one of the more challenging sections of our coast, (actually starting in Carmarthenshire), provides great views of the southern coast along Carmarthen Bay to the east, across to the Gower Peninsula, (and Somerset and Lundy Island – on a good day!) to the south, and of course, lovely, ever-changing views to the West as we walk ‘home’. Starting at Pendine Sands with its history of land speed trials, and keeping close to the coast, ‘up hill and down dale’ six or seven times, it will be taken at a leisurely pace, to arrive back at Amroth at 1500 hrs. (approx.) with a choice of establishments for a brief refreshment if required. There are no short cuts, but anyone with a reasonable degree of fitness will have no problem at all tackling this walk. This walk is assessed as ‘Moderate/Hard’.
Timing and Meeting Point: Park in the main car park at Amroth, behind the shops, GR SN163 071, in time to catch the No. 351, 0923 bus to Pendine. (Bring bus passes if appropriate). The bus stop is to the western end of the promenade, in front of the shops, – a footpath leads from the car park. SORRY, NO DOGS. Wear appropriate gear, and bring lunch and water.
Lead Organiser: Chris Taylor 01646-600225. (In case of a poor forecast, ring Chris on Friday evening, as the walk, which affords little shelter, could be postponed).
