Day 042 : Castlemartin – Wallaston Cross

Today we turn inland to follow the estuary of the Pembroke river..


This area is very much the powerhouse of Britain where a lot of our imported oil and gas comes in.

Freshwater West bay is my first stop. A favourite spot with surfers due to its strong waves and currents.

There was a fabulous trailer café by the beach road called Café Mor. It had a very enterprising menu of seafood sandwiches I just settled for a coffee and chocolate brownie which are made locally.

West Angle bay is surrounded by cliffs which has a hidden beach feel to it.


I turn into the estuary and pass Thorn Island before turning into the wide arc of Angle Bay.. The Island has a fort on it that was built to defend Milford Haven.


As you approach Angle there is a pretty pub called the Old Point House which can get cut off at high tide. The pub is associated with the lifeboatmen with the lifeboat station just along the coast.


The whole bay is overlooked by the gas storage towers and vents of Rhoscrowther and the oil terminal at Popton Point.

Back at my accommodation I got chatting to a guy called Chris who was motorcycling around the coast of Britain. It was a very pleasant chat, but he was leaving early the next day so I wished him good luck and hope he completes his trip.
