Angle to Pembroke

This stage is easy walking and mostly on the flat. From Angle the path skirts East Angle bay, numerous estuarine inlets and sheltered bays which are a haven for wildlife, so pack binoculars and a bird book.

The route then takes in the industrial side of Pembrokeshire, past the refineries and finally meanders alongside the Pembroke River and into the town.

The finale to this stage has to be Pembroke Castle. This magnificent castle dominates the town and is the birth place of Henry VII and the Tudor dynasty.

ROUTE

  • From Angle village, cut through the children’s playground and take a look at The Tower House, a medieval fortified tower.
  • Turn right, over the bridge, and go back to the road.
  • Turn left along a superb tree lined lane that hugs the edge of East Angle Bay.
  • Continue on the path, through the woods, when the road runs out.
  • While you’re walking round the bay, keep an eye out for curlews and other waders.
  • On the far side of the bay, you pick up another tarmac lane that you follow round to the Chevron refinery, which may feel incongruous amongst such lush countryside, but it’s fascinating nonetheless.
  • You pass Fort Popton, built to protect the Royal Navy port at Pembroke Dock in Napoleonic times.
  • The path now heads a little inland past Pwllcrochan Church. Stop to take a look at the boardwalks & interpretation there.
  • The path now meanders round the edge of the estuary, partly on and partly off the road until you reach Pembroke.
  • If in doubt, follow the acorn symbols that indicate where the route goes.
