The The Pembrokeshire Coast Path Summary

The The Pembrokeshire Coast Path by John Cleare

Pembrokeshire occupies the far south western extremity of Wales with the ocean on three sides. Its coastline is complex and convoluted - a succession of cliffs and coves, inlets and islands, stacks and skerries and the great drowned estuary of Milford Haven. Many justly claim this coastal scenery to be among the finest in the World. The Pembrokeshire Coast Path, an official National Trail designated in 1970, closely follows this coast from Amroth in the south to St.Dogmael's in the north - a distance of 186 miles - almost entirely within a National Park. As the meeting place of Celts, Irish, Vikings, Welsh, Normans, English and Flemings, Pembrokeshire is steeped in history and thanks in part to its fascinating geology its shores are especially rich in distinctive flora and fauna. Nowhere is the Coast Path far from historic sites and charming villages or the fascinating small towns of St David's, Pembroke and Tenby. Flavoured by the moods of the ocean, this book captures the atmosphere of the Coast Path and the ever-changing landscapes, seascapes and the settlements through which it passes. It will evoke treasured memories for those who already know Pembrokeshire, and enthuse those for whom that pleasure is yet to come.

The The Pembrokeshire Coast Path Reviews

Published to coincide with the national trail's 40th anniversary, this beautiful collection of images is photographer John Cleare's loving birthday card to the Pembrokeshire Coast Path. WALK magazine The rocks really are the stars of the show. It's a symphony of stratal sandstone, lichen-bloched limestone, pebble strewn beaches and dramatic caves that had the geologist in me enraptured. WALK magazine I commend John's book because it genuinely communicates enjoyment of the uncomplicated pleasures of coastal walking. Buy it and cherish it! Manchester Evening News It is argued that the wildness and the beauty make the walk along Pembrokshire's coast one of the finest in the world, and it would be hard to disagree. This sumptuous, full-colour book does it full justice. Evergreen
