Tuesday 9 October 2018: Marloes and Dale Park Walk

Details:  We start the walk from the car park passing the old Youth Hostel, cross the fields and join the coast path.  On our left is Gateholm  (the site of a medieval monastery) and on our right an Iron Age earth works.  From there we come to the site of the Albion shipwreck and continue on to Deer Park.  If the weather is kind to us, we can picnic there and enjoy views to Skomer, Grassholm and the whole of St Brides Bay.  After lunch we back track a little picking up the lane to Marloes Mere (maybe see some migrating ducks) and back to the car park.   We should be back by 2.30 ish.

After the walk refreshments can be enjoyed in Marloes Village at either The Lobster Pot or the Clock House cafe but I can’t guarantee they will be open.

The walk is classed as “easy”  It is about  5/6 miles long.  Bring a picnic and the usual stout walking gear.

Timings and Meeting Point:  Meet at the National Trust car park (SM7793 0823 near Marloes Mere). This is not the  car park at Martin’s Haven. The walk will start at 10:30.
