BRUNEL TRAIL

For a family day out why not follow the traffic-free Brunel Trail between Haverfordwest and Neyland, part of the Celtic Trail - National Route 4. This is a purpose built signed cycle path with lovely views, embracing the solitude of open countryside. From Haverfordwest start at county hall car park and ride along Freeman’s Way cycle path to Merlin’s Bridge roundabout. Cross the roundabout, using the cycle crossings, and head up the road towards Pembrokeshire College. Turn left onto the cycle path at the bottom of the hill. This section of cyclepath rolls through the water meadows of Cinnamon Grove, through Bolton Hill woods and alongside the railway line to Johnston.

From Johnston, follow the Brunel Trail past Rosemarket along the route of the Great Western Railway, built by Isambard Kingdom Brunel 150 years ago. The path runs through the Westfield Pill Nature Reserve, a sheltered inlet from the Cleddau Waterway providing a sanctuary for birds and rare plants. The cycle way terminates at Brunel Quay, Neyland where a break for refreshments can be taken.

This is a popular shared use path so please expect to encounter other cyclists, walkers and wheelchair users. The path is wide and well surfaced with an abundance of wildlife in the undisturbed banks on either side of the route.

Mode: cycle and walking with four sections of bridleway

Length: 9 miles (14.48km) 1 1/4 hrs
