  • National Treasures – Simon Whaley
    against all development but any development that occurs has to be appropriate and in the right place Park Promotion But that s not all that they do The second aim of the 1949 Act is to promote opportunities for exploring the special qualities of the parks It s a finely balanced job because increased visitor numbers puts more pressure on the very landscape they are charged with protecting As Richard Barnett from the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Authority says the best and most environmentally friendly way for visitors to travel is on buses run by Pembrokeshire Greenways a partnership that includes the National Park Authority The services named Poppit Rocket Strumble Shuttle Celtic Coaster Puffin Shuttle and Coastal Cruiser have been running for 8 years and last year carried 60 000 passengers around the coast within the National Park Thirty thousand fewer car trips were made in the National Park last year thanks to the buses A common misconception is that the National Parks are nationally owned This is not the case In fact within both Snowdonia and the Brecon Beacons 70 of the land is in private hands In Pembrokeshire this figure rises to nearly 90 You cannot just go wandering off on National Park land anywhere you like As well as being outstandingly beautiful these places are also working communities where people are striving to work hard and earn a living Ironically it was the Countryside and Rights of Way Act 2000 that increased access within our National Parks by creating Open Access Land something that many outdoor groups had called for long before the 1949 National Park Act which gave us these protected parks in the first place National Parks have a difficult job to do It s a fine balancing act trying to preserve the peace tranquillity and beauty of a landscape whilst encouraging more people to explore and learn about the wildlife and history of the area and also fostering the social and economic well being of the communities within it Picking up my rucksack the coast path beckons once more and it s time to get moving again I often wonder what this coastline would be like if the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park didn t exist Would the oil terminals at Milford Haven have expanded and obliterated the sights I see before me now Who knows Heading back to the car I can t help but think about what the late broadcaster and journalist Brian Redhead said when he was President of the Council for National Parks He noted that these places were not ours but ours to look after I whole heartedly agree This month there are three walks to tempt you into each one of our national parks The Snowdonia and Pembrokeshire routes are relatively gentle whilst the Brecon Beacons route is a bit more challenging For more information about events taking place in your nearest National Park and other walking ideas visit the relevant National Park website or contact one of the National Park visitor centres see box Snowdonia National Park Torrent Walk near Brithdir and Dolgellau 2 ½ miles Gentle OS Map OL23 Cadair Idris Bala Lake Park in the small lay by on the B4416 opposite the school between the village of Brithdir and the main A470 road Follow the B road towards Brithdir until you reach St Mark s Church on your right and a narrow lane on your left Turn left down the lane and follow this for over a kilometre passing a couple of farms on both sides You may be able to hear the Clywedog stream in the gorge on your left as you pass through some gates and enter a Forestry Commission area Fork gently to the left and at a lane turn left so that you cross over the stream and then turn left again through an iron gate Proceed along this path with the stream on your left through the trees and look out for three large boulders across the path Continue ignoring any paths off to your right passing a bench Eventually the path crosses the stream once more over an iron bridge to rejoin the B4416 Turn left passing a lane on your right to Caerynwch to return to the lay by St Mark s Church is one of the few Art Nouveau churches in existence in Wales Step inside and marvel at the brightly painted walls and ceiling and the copper pulpit and altar Pembrokeshire Coast National Park St Justinian s near St David s 2 miles Gentle OS Map OL35 North Pembrokeshire Either park in the small lay by at the end of the St David s to St Justinian s road or take the Celtic Coaster seasonal minibus from St David s and follow the lane heading back inland passing several buildings at Rhosson Just after passing a campsite on your right take the signed footpath on your left along a track passing two properties on the left Where the track bears right continue ahead on signed path towards Porthselau Sands with a caravan park on your left Ignore the footpath joining from the right At a junction with the coast path turn left and follow this around the headland with great views to your right of Carreg gafeiliog rocks and as the path bears left again Ramsey Island Look out on the rocks and islands for any signs of seals or dolphins swimming off the coast The path eventually turns sharp left again with excellent views of the lifeboat station before bearing right to come up behind it Once past the wooden shed turn left to rejoin the lane and return to the car or await the Celtic Coaster to return you to St David s Brecon Beacons National Park Pen Y Fan near Brecon 4 miles Strenuous OS Map OL12 Brecon Beacons National Park Western Area This energetic and steep walk takes you to the summit of the highest peak in the Brecon Beacons and
