No snow problem this time for John Reeves

Last Saturday’s walk on 16th June with Pembrokeshire Ramblers was The Miners Track from Kilgetty. This walk was originally scheduled for March 3rd but was called off due to the snow at that time. No such problem this time just the occasional shower with sunshine after lunch.

Eighteen walkers set off from Kilgetty car park at 10.30 on the 6 mile circular walk and the first section of the route was along the disused tram way as far Thomas Chapel, site of an old mine shaft, where it connects with the Landsker Borderlands Trail. From here the wide track gives way to signed footpaths through woodland and fields to the A478 just north of Folly Farm. After carefully crossing the busy road the route continues along Ryelands Lane as far as the rail bridgeand here it bears left along the farm track leading through Trewern Farm to Kilgetty Wood. It is at this point that the Landsker Trail goes north while we continued south along the Miners Walk.

This section passes along the side of the valley with fine views over the Ford’s Lake area before returning to farmland at Penrath.  After a short distance the path enters the conifer plantation before emerging onto the track at Woodcock Wells, which leads to the road beside the school.  From here it was a short walk back to the car park and refreshments at the Begelly Arms.

Solstice Gathering on Carn Ingli with Karen Durham

On the evening of Thursday 21st June 2018, seven Rambler Members gathered at Bedd Morris Car Park.  After a lovely sunny day we set off on a pleasant stroll across the moorland, and then a climb up Carn Ingli.  

We had a beautiful view over Newport Beach and Dinas Head.  We stayed on Carn Ingli having drinks and chocolate.  At 9.30 as it got chilly we made our way down slowly passing horses and their foals back to our cars.A pleasant enjoyable, calm and peaceful evening was spent sitting on the top of Carn Ingli.
