Rambler crossing borders with John Reeves
After cancelling the walk from the previous day the weather on Sunday morning 17th March 2019 was much improved as nine Pembrokeshire Ramblers set out from Marros church for a 6.5 mile walk. On reaching the Coast Path above Marros Sands the route was west, with some steep ascents and descents, towards Amroth and across the border into Pembrokeshire. The visibility was excellent with fine views of The Worms Head and Gower Peninsular to the east and Caldy Island and Tenby to the west.
On reaching the path junction above Telpyn Beach the route was inland to the Amroth Pendine road. We then crossed back into Carmarthenshire to enter Little Treslissey Wood and followed the river, which marks the border of the two counties, before crossing back in to Pembrokeshire. We then continued uphill through woodland and fields to the road to Legerland, on the outskirts of LLanteg.
Permission had been given for the Ramblers to enter the private land and follow the forestry road, back into Carmarthenshire, to connect with the public footpath at Merrimans Gate that runs on the north side of the plantation at Marros Mountain. From here it was a short walk east, back to Marros Church, just ahead of the rain, at 2pm. The walkers would like to thank the owners of the Marros Mountain plantation for allowing them to cross their land.

A Pendine & Marros walk with Gillian Phillps.
It was a beautiful day on 24th March for a tough but rewarding 7 mile walk that started in Pendine. The route took us along the coast path, which involved a few challenging climbs but with stunning views of Pendine sands, over to Worm's Head at Gower, and along the Pembrokeshire coastline to Tenby. We looped inland past Marros church and via some woodland, and fields to pick up the track back to Morfa Bychan. It was a very low tide so we enjoyed a lovely walk back along the beach to have refreshments sat outside back in Pendine. There were 18 on the walk, including 2 visitors.
