A beautiful 11-mile circular walk starting at Bosherston Lilly Ponds in Pembrokeshire.

Meeting at the National Trust Car Park in Bosherston, we walk through the Lilly Ponds, which is picturesque at any time of year and great for seeing an array of wildlife.   We then head to Broad Haven South Beach, a stunning setting which was featured in the TV series Britannia.  If you look carefully you can see the face of a Gorillia in the rock.  I will be sure to point it out on route!

We then head up on to the cliffs and head towards St Govan’s chapel.  The chapel was built in the 13th century, although part of it may date back to the sixth century when Saint Govan, a monk/hermit moved into a cave on the side of the chapel.

After exploring the chapel, we continue along the coastal path, with lots of dramatic scenery to take in.  We will walk over the Castle martin range and can take in few points of attraction including, Elegug Stacks, Huntsman’s Leap and then the famous Green Bridge.

We then make our way in land where we come across Flimston Chapel, which was originally built in the 5th century and the nearby Flimston Farm House ruins. 

We then take a leisurely walk, across country and through Farmland, taking us back to our staring point at Bosherston.
