Treffgarne and Lion Rock walk with Janice Barker

Pembrokeshire Ramblers thoroughly enjoyed their 7.8 mile walk from Salem Chapel last Saturday 8th April. Fifteen waterproof-clad walkers started the walk through Treffgarne Woods and along the gorge, stopping off to drink coffee and admire the view of Lion Rock and Maiden Castle from Little Treffgarne Rocks  . Then on via the dark conifer woods to Danbarch, through the tunnel under the railway and across the Western Cleddau river by the pretty footbridge.

The rain having stayed away , and temperatures having risen , some layers of clothing were removed after the crossing of the A40 and the traverse of the track up to  West Ford . Across a beautiful meadow with sheep and lambs enjoying the respite from the wet weather and past the circular remnant of an Iron Age settlement - easy to imagine these ancient people's roaming the upland area  just like us .

A picnic lunch was enjoyed in a sheltered spinney before the climb up to Poll Carn  (Lion Rock ) with panoramic views over Haverfordwest , Wolfscastle and the mist -shrouded Preseli's in the distance . A scramble down the south side of the rocks and return through Treffgarne village and back across the A40 at Treffgarne Bridge and through the railway tunnel to the start point below Salem Chapel .

The Three Havens Walk with Gill Phillips

On Sunday 15th April a group of 12 walkers started the 8.5 miles walk around the Boardwalk in Broad Haven, which has been really well developed by the local community, with information boards and pictures of the possible birds and wildlife you might see on the pond and surrounding area.

We then headed up through Haroldstone woods, and over to Druidstone Haven, which was stunning as always and busy with walkers, surfers and horse riders. The coast path was then followed for the lunch break at Nolton Haven, when the rain did conveniently stop. We headed back over to Druidstone along a quiet road with coastal views, and picked up the coast path back to Broad Haven, where the sun was shining.
