Cilgerran Circular with Gillian Phillips
On Sunday 9th September 21 walkers set off from Cardigan, along by the river to the Cilgerran Wildlife Centre. Some visitors from Carmarthen Ramblers and one potential new member on their first walk with us were welcomed. We followed woodland trails into Cilgerran, and tracks to Penrallt Fach farm, and circled back into the village, where we had lunch by the river.
Unfortunately we had a heavy shower at this point, but managed to find a handy spot to accommodate the group to have shelter while having lunch. We then headed back through fields and woodland to follow the very pretty, but rather tricky Gorge trail back to the Wildlife Centre. We had planned on taking the Boardwalk back to Cardigan, but this was unfortunately closed as had been damaged by some horses that got loose, and was impassable. The walk was just short of 8 miles.

Sunshine on Slebech with Lena Arnold
17 Pembrokeshire Ramblers set out from the car park overlooking the A40 at Canaston Bridge on Saturday morning, 7th July 2018, for a circular walk via Slebech Park. The first section of the walk was along the multiuser track and the walkers were glad of the shade offered by the overhead trees. On reaching the shoreline at Slebech Park the walkers took the anti-clockwise route along the permissive path network that PCNP, with permission from the park owners, had opened up.
After a short walk along the driveway the signed route is through fields and Oxland Woods to the reed beds on the shoreline. From here the path passes through the walled garden to the ruined church overlooking the river where lunch was taken in the shade of the church yard. After lunch the group split into two, with those wishing to take the shorter seven mile walk re tracing there steps along the multiuser track back to the start point.
The remaining walkers who had opted for the nine mile walk followed the signed route up to the A40 at Slebech. After carefully crossing the very busy main road the route continued along farm tracks, quiet country lanes and fields back to the start point by 3pm. The walk was enjoyed by all and those who wished adjourned to the Bush Inn for well- earned refreshments and to watch the England game against Sweden.
