Secret Paths and Walks on the Wild Side

Walking, photographing and enjoying the outdoor life. Most walks are along the Wales Coastal Path but some are on Nature Reserves, around Country House estates and others are just walks in the countryside.

New Walk Added :20/7/2018

Here is a summary of the new walk:

Peterston Wentloog to Dyffryn Newport


A relatively flat days walking the majority of which is along a seawall. From the top of the seawall you will be faced with stunning views of the Somerset coast line across the channel. In the Channel you will see  Flat Holme and Steep Holme. Looking inland there are views of lowlands overshadowed by distant hills. The whole of the coast here is salt marsh and mud flats. This area is known as the Wentloog Levels, it is an outstanding site for bird watching. Nearing the end of the walk, which is no longer upon the seawall, the path follows the Ebbw River inland. Views of Newport docks, industrial complexes and the famous Tranporter Bridge can be seen.

There are some historical features, such as Peterston Gout and the West Usk Lighthouse along the track. A convenient watering hole, the Lighthouse Inn at St. Brides, would supply refreshment if required.
