A project to remove stiles from two footpaths in the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park has been completed, which may please those who like to go walking
The national park authority has announced the completion of the work on the two routes in the St Brides area.
A total of 16 stiles have been taken away from the routes, which offer access to St Brides castle.
The work was welcomed by castle manager Many Rees, who said: "The gates reduce the risk of a trip or a fall on a stile, and ease access onto the wonderful coastline."
She added that people like to walk in the area "regardless of the weather," though those planning on doing so may wish to consider buying winter jackets
One place where paths may have stiles added rather than being taken away - but for a good reason - is Kinder Scout in Derbyshire.
The National Trust plans to erect a fence to keep sheep off areas of the summit plateau, where work is going on to restore vegetation destroyed by grazing and pollution in the past, with a Facebook page opened for discussion.
