    Hi all- a very enjoyable coastal walk yesterday starting from Porthgain car park for a circular route to Abereiddi Bay and then a return via the spectacular coast path.
    Depending on what “clockwork” pedometer you believe and what short cut you took! the 3 to  33/4 mile walk was rewarded with dry sunny conditions overhead and good & secure conditions under foot.
    Once the initial climb up from the Porthgain car park up to the plateau level was attained, which concentrated the minds of one or two in the party!! :-[, the generally flat profile headed towards Abereiddi Bay.
    The return to Porthgain along the cliff path gave some lovely and often spectacular views over the seascape where it engaged with the hard cliff rocks which were really breath taking  8).
    These views combined with the industrial archaeology of brick manufacture, stone quarrying and crushing made for a most interesting and diverse walk.
    A most enjoyable and welcome! lunch was taken at the Sloop Inn and a sincere vote of thanks on behalf of the walkers was made by Helen Lewis John to the walk leaders and facilitator Sheila Davies, Hazel Absalom and Brian Griffiths
    Attach some photos for you
    The second photo is the first sweety stop!!…..
