Coastal path ambition moves closer
Bookmark and Share
Those who like to go walking along the Welsh coastline can enjoy a new 16-mile stretch along the Gower Peninsula, which was opened today (September 28th).

It covers an area between Llanmadoc and Port Eynon and includes one of Britain's most popular beaches - Rhossili - and the Worm's Head Peninsula.

The new path has 41 waymarking points and its establishment included 22 steps being carved out of solid rock.

It brings the Welsh Assembly's stated ambition of a complete coastal path nearer and environment minister Jane Davidson commented: "Walking is a great way to enjoy the heritage and wildlife of Wales as well as the stunning coastline."

Those keen to walk the path may wish to get some walking gear at the Go Outdoors store in Cardiff.

Meanwhile, the Ramblers has continued to campaign for an English coastal path, warning the government against cutting funding as public austerity measures are introduced and promising the body would help save money in its creation.

Chief executive Tom Franklin declared there is "an army of experienced volunteers ready and waiting to help with everything from surveying paths to putting in sign posts".
