Circular walk from Solva to St Elvis and Dinas Fawr (25)
Circular walk from Solva to St Elvis and Dinas Fawr (25)
This series of photos portrays a 2-mile circular walk east and south of Solva, Pembrokeshire.

Initially, the walk climbs out of the valley of the River Solva onto The Gribbin, a knife-edge ridge between the glacial valleys of Solva and Gwadn. The walk then descends to a marshy area before climbing inland to farmland. Near St Elvis Farm, the walk passes a cromlech (a neolithic burial chamber) then heads to the coastpath and turns west to follow the clifftop. After descending into Gwadn cove, the walk climbs to rejoin The Gribbin before descending into Solva. The route can be followed on OS 1:50000 sheet 157 or on OS 'Explorer' 1:25000 sheet OL35.

The walk follows the coastpath along the clifftop west towards Solva. There are several gates along this stretch and the path is well signposted. However, walkers should be cautious as the cliff edge is not fenced off and, in places, is precipitous.

This photo is looking back (eastward) along the coastpath to Dinas Fawr headland. There is a public right of way out to the tip of the headland but it is a precipitous path and suitable only for sure-footed walkers.
