Walk Description



This short walk follows easy paths, mostly on hard surfaces,
passing the boat house and returns inland along country lanes and meadows.
A visit to Dylan's grave can be made on route.

The first part of this route can be covered by incoming tides so check before you start.
From the car park go over the hump back footbridge and follow the coast path beneath the castle.
A number of links climb to the top path but subject to the tide, carry on to the last one and ascend steps to Dylan's writing shed.
Turn right at the top and pass above the Boat House. Continue straight along into woodland.
At a stile the path goes into grassland. Continue straight to a footbridge and pedestrian gate.
Go to the left side of the house and follow the lane.
After about half a mile, ignore the tarmacadam right turn to Brixtarw.
At the next junction turn left onto the road.
After half a mile go through an old metal kissing gate on the right into the back of the churchyard.
Walk around the church to a footbridge over the lane.
Go across and turn left to visit the grave then retrace your steps to the bridge.
Head down to the main road and turn right.
Turn left down the side road and at the stream turn left over the stile into the meadow.
Cross another stile and head into the woodland. The path continues into Holloway Road, straight on past houses.
Turn left into Newbridge Road and walk past the playing field until the road joins the main road.
Turn right and follow this road back to the car park.
