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

Lower Solva to Newgale

The walk begins at Lower Solva, the main lime burning centre for the St Davids area with 10 kilns in operation during Victorian times. There are a good range of shops, pubs and guesthouses at Solva including the Harbour Inn mentioned in the Good Beer Guide. You will pass two islands Dinas Bach ('small stronghold') and Dinas Fawr ('large stronghold'). There are remains of a Tudor copper mine on Dinas Fawr and look out for the blowhole on Dinas Bach. Here you move from Welsh speaking Pembrokeshire to English speaking, you are also entering the Pembroke coal measures mined in the 1800s. The walk ends at Newgale beach where sands stretch for over 2 miles and is a popular destination for surfers however be aware of powerful undertows.
