On Saturday 15 September 2012, walk for water so others don’t have to.

Llanrhystud to Aberystwyth

With no settlements between these locations and with 'feeder paths' being few and far between, this is one of the least walked sections of the Ceredigion Coast Path. Despite being challenging this section of Heritage Coast is dramatic, lonely and extremely worthwhile. Watch out for the hanging oak woodlands of Penderi Cliffs, a wide variety of sea birds and grey seals basking on the rocks below. The University town of Aberystwyth is the principal town of Ceredigion, with its famous electric Cliff Railway, the Camera Obscura, the Vale of Rheidol narrow gauge Steam Railway, the Ceredigion Museum and the National Library of Wales. Aberystwyth has direct rail links to Shrewbury and Birmingham.
