Optional Extra Day At Newport To Walk In The Preseli Hills

A place from the dawn of time itself, the wild, mysterious and rocky plains of the Preseli Hills tower above the northern sections of The Pembrokeshire Coast Path above the overnight stop of Newport where at Carn Ingli – (Angle Rock Mountain) the local Welsh Saint Brynach would climb to commune with the angels" in the 5th century.

A place of huge prehistoric significance the whole area is a protected wilderness within the Pembrokeshire National Park.  It was from here that the huge Bluestone rocks were dragged to build the inner circle at Stonehenge hundreds of miles away in Wiltshire and the Preseli slopes are covered in standing stones, Neolithic hut circles and hill forts.
