Newport Paths Group
The Newport Paths Group are volunteers who aim to improve access to the countryside around Newport for everyone.
Founded in 1999, the Group created the Newport Millennium Trail with information panels and a trail guide. Starting at the Parrog Car Park, it makes an excellent half-day circular walk.
For those needing something less strenuous, the Group organised the Parrog-Cwm Easy Access Path with information panels, leaflets and large print and Braille guides.
For more information on the group’s activities and photos, click the link below.
From the banks of the Nevern estuary, up the slopes of Carningli Mountain, down wooded valleys and out to Newport Beach sand dunes, these walks offer a variety of beautiful scenery and natural habitats.
In order to download a PDF map of the path around Newport, please click the link below.
The main work of the Group is cutting back the grass and undergrowth along local footpaths in the summer and maintaining them in the winter. This may involve clearing streams, laying stones or gravel, digging ditches or building bridges. We work closely with Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Authority (PCNPA) Rangers.
Our paths make a wonderful network.
Download maps of individual paths from the PCNPA website below.
We also help the PCNPA eradicate Himalayan Balsam which is invading and spoiling the banks of the Nevern and the Clydach.
The Group depends on volunteer members. The Group has a committee of members elected at the Annual General Meeting with representatives of the Newport Town Council and PCNPA. The Council and PCNPA support the Group. Anyone is welcome to join and take part. To join or for more information please contact one of us:
