Walk Progress

Instruction 1

From the lifeboat station walk past this and down, turning left onto the coastal path, above the steps. Continue past a number of lofty, grassy promontories that make great picnic spots. After 1/2 mile (800m), look out for the traces of Iron Age earthworks on the left.


Instruction 2

Pass a gate and a track on your left and swing around to the west above Ogof Felen. The trail climbs slightly and then drops steeply to a ruined copper mine, directly opposite The Bitches.


Instruction 3

Continue easily to Pen Daladeryn and then swing eastwards to enter St Brides Bay. The path climbs above some magnificent cliffs and passes between a few rocky outcrops before bearing north above the broad bay of Porth Henllys. Drop down into a shallow valley until you come to a fingerpost at a junction of paths.


Instruction 4

Make a left turn and cross a stile on the right, into a field. Make another left turn and follow the track along the wall to another gate, where you enter a courtyard. Keep left here and pass a barn on the left. When the track opens out into a field, keep right to pass through a gate and on to a waymarked track.


Instruction 5

Continue along this waymarked track down between dry stone walls to reach another gate, which leads back out on to the coast path. Turn right and retrace your steps along the grassy clifftop path back to St Justinian's and the car park at the lifeboat station.
