Description
This is a 6.5 mile trail visiting a neolithic burial chamber, a pilgrims cross and the Norman church at Nevern. This one day pilgrimage is provided by Guided Pilgrimage, a not-for-profit travel company providing a range of Celtic pilgrimage experiences in West Wales. We start the day by taking great big gulps of wonderful fresh sea air on the Wales Coast Path before heading to a New Stone Age burial chamber thought to have Arthurian connections. Then, via quiet roads and forest paths, we head to the pilgrim cross and church at Nevern with its tall Celtic cross and weeping yew trees. After Nevern, we enjoy some beautiful walks in the unique natural surroundings of West Wales before coming back to Newport, past the church and castle to reach our starting point. During our time together we will, at times, walk in silence to allow us to really absorb the heritage of the land, of times past, of the precious nature and respect a spiritual connection that our day to day lives do not normally allow us to see. It would be wonderful if you are able to join us. Our walking today is over mostly easy terrain but visitors should be able to comfortably walk 6.5 miles at a steady pace. We will take regular stops and there are toilets at the beginning, middle and end.
