UPDATED walking route details are being posted at www.walkcelt.com

STUDIES are taking place at some of the sites. News and study reports are posted at www.coguru.co.uk

 The Celtic Way 

It is a walk to ancient sites in western Britain following tracks, trails and pathways. Starting at Strumble Head and crossing hills, valleys, cliffs and rivers to Stonehenge it includes hill forts and megaliths used by settlers in our early history and the Celtic past. It is set up in sections, ten in south Wales, and 10 in western England.

The route in its current form it mainly uses well-signed footpaths and pre-existing trails. 

Running from the Pembrokeshire Preseli Mountains it goes across south Wales to the Severn, then across Avon and Wessex to Avebury and Stonehenge. There is a route from Penwith in Cornwall up to Glastonbury and Stonehenge, with a link to Brittany in western France.

The original guide was published with safety suggestions and reference to the country code. This one needs to be emphasised. Footpaths along the route will have changed. Do not expect it to be the same throughout. You are responsible for your walking choices.  

The links below might be useful if you are planning to walk any part of the route:

        The Countryside Code published by Natural England           Hillwalking Guidance. The Brecon Beacons guidance for  walking.

Each section will have guides to the area showing transport, accommodation, and tourist information, but, inevitably,  it will have changed.
