|Contributor:||NatResWales||Activity Type:||Walking||Difficulty:||Average||Distance:||7.323 mi (11.786 km)|
|Description:||This walk uses a section of the Wales Coast Path and takes in the stunning coastline and countryside of Swansea. Along the way you will pass Weobley Castle.
This walk can be broken down into shorter sections if you prefer to do just the Llanrhidian or Cheriton circular loops.
The Llanrhidian to Cheriton Walk takes you on a walk back in time to the 13th and 14th century and includes St Cadoc's church in Cheriton, where you can see the choir stalls, altar and altar rails and embossed wooden ceiling that were personally carved by Rev J.D. Davies in 1974 when the church was restored.
Pause a while along your walk to visit Weobley Castle, which was actually a fortified manor house and dates back to the 15th century. The vista from Weobley across to the north Gower marshlands is considered to be one of its finer points.
You can find this walk area on the OS map 164
Walk distance: 7.3 miles or 11.8 kms
Terrain:The route passes through a gently undulating landscape.
The route of the Coast Path itself is fairly flat and close to sea-level, but the surface underfoot is occasionally rough. A number of stiles will be found on the route and some areas will be slightly muddy. There is a very steep slope at Bovehill.
Safety: On rare occasions the path will be submerged for a short
time beneath high tides. Take care when following the short sections
of road - there are no pavements. Check the tides before you set out on the BBC website
Follow advice and local signs, and be prepared for the unexpected.
Please ensure you are prepared for all weather conditions and wear suitable clothing and stout footwear for your walk.
