Carew Walk 13th July

c. John James

On Saturday the 13th July 2013 members met at the car park overlooking Carew Castle for a walk organised by Llanteg Community Association. 
It was a beautiful summer's day with some stunning scenery.  The walk commenced along the footpath from the car park alongside the crystal clear waters surrounding the castle.  After negotiating a number of stiles along rights of way we approached the Old Mill which is a splendid tribute to those involved in its preservation and a positive reflection of the busy hustle and bustle of years gone by.
After crossing the main road at Milton we ambled past the Old Water Works and headed for Carew Cheriton Church which we were told is one of the largest churches in Pembrokeshire; a truly remarkable spectacle and well worth a visit with its stunning architecture. 
A visit to the nearly graveyard with graves of Airmen who lost their lives during the war was an important part of the agenda with the ground attended to with such care and precision.
We concluded our walk by retracing our steps towards the Old Mill where we enjoyed the refreshing comforts of a well earned cup of tea.
This was a most enjoyable experience with very pleasant weather and good company around an area of 2 3/4 miles of historic significance and beautiful scenery.
Again many thanks to Jill Chatwin for arranging the walk and monitoring the route.
