Coast Path Walk

Fancy a challenge and a good leg stretch?
We’ll catch the train from Burry Port to Ferryside, and then walk back along the coast path. Total distance is approx. 15 miles (shorter option available – see below)
The first section is quite hilly, but in this direction it’ll be mostly downhill (hurray!). From Kidwelly onwards, it’s basically flat.
some road (not too much), hard paths, soft paths, a few miles along the beach at Pembrey.
Things to note:
– Train cost is c.£5. The exact time is subject to (minor) change once Transport for Wales have finalised the 2023 timetable. There is free parking in Burry Port a short walk from the train station, or a pay and display at the station.
– suitable for dogs (as long as they’ll be OK on the train) – but first section is farmland, so leads please! I can’t remember if there are any stiles to get over, but there certainly aren’t loads.
– we may be finishing in the dark, so please bring a headtorch / torch if you’ve got one
Things to bring:
– food. And drinks. And snacks. More snacks.
– clothing suitable for the weather. Think layers! You may get warm walking and cool down quickly if we stop for drinks/food. The beach section is very exposed and if its windy it can be exceedingly cold
If you’ve never walked that far, or are nervous about the distance – DON’T PANIC!
you have a bit of time to prepare for it, and you’ll have super-supportive walking buddies. It absolutely isn’t a route-march or a race!
Shorter Option:
If you want to join us in Kidwelly, you’d be very welcome. It’s about 10 miles from there. If you want to leave a car in Kidwelly, I’m happy to give you a lift back to your car afterwards
If you have any questions or concerns, please do get in touch. It would be really lovely to see you there.
Pre-booking preferred but not essential. Book in through the West Wales group on FB
