Wales Coast Path 870 miles

So far we have walked 327 miles of the Coastal Path, passing through South Wales, The Gower, Carmarthenshire and into Pembrokeshire, which leaves us 543 miles to go. If all goes well and we achieve the goal I have set for Easter 2019 we will reach halfway on the last day.

We will be continuing our journey from Bride’s Haven over the 10 day Easter period in 2019. En-route we will be passing Broad Haven, Caerfai (from where we will visit St Davids), St Non’s (St David’s Mum), Strumble Head, Fishguard, St Dogmaels. This is where we leave the Pembrokeshire Coast Path (another Long Distance Path ticked off with no extra effort). We then enter Ceredigion (where we begin the Ceredigion Coast Path) passing Cardigan with the finish at New Quay. The distance is around 120 miles. The daily mileage will be between 9 (one day only) and 14 miles. Having said that you only do what you want to do. Some go off and see the sites, shops and visit cafes and tea rooms. If you are interested please contact me.

On the Late May Bank Holiday weekend I am planning to continue our excursion around the coast, this time from Eastbourne to Gravesend and knowing me, even further. It will begin with the first 5 miles of the Eastbourne Culture Trail to Pevensey. We will then continue on the 1066 Country Walk as far as Doleham from where we will take the Link to Hastings. The real walk then begins, the Saxon Shore Way, which is 163 miles from Hastings to Gravesend. The intention is to do it over a series of weekends, so I think it may be possible to finish it before the end of the year, but then again it may not.
