Experience the diversity of the county’s unique landscape heritage, whether its majestic coastline and award winning beaches, its hidden woodlands and sparkling rivers, or the high hills of the Preseli which supplied Stonehenge with Pembrokeshire stone. Follow in the footsteps of the early Neolithic settlers, or Celtic saints and their hidden haunts, or linger amongst the Romantic ruins of the great Norman castles. Coastal and inland villages and farms all add their distinctive features to this ancient land.
Most walks are circular, all are suitable for individuals and families, and clear directions are given, together with sketch maps to help clarify the routes. As a companion volume to Circular Walks in North Pembrokeshire users will find, as always, that details of the starting point for each walk is given, and of how to reach it by both car and public transport. For those with an appetite to know more of the county history notes are given which explain what gives each place it’s own brand of uniqueness, and the guide is introduced by a narrative history of the landscape and culture. Nor would any guide to pub walks be complete without an account of the history of the pub and the pubs featured, and the evolution of inn signs. For those who are tongue-tied by the mysteries of the Welsh language a short section on place names and pronunciation, is also given. Details of all Tourist Information Centres are listed.
Finally where better to end your own explorations than in the local pub, each with their own character and charm!
