A circular five-mile walk that included a section of coast path in the Mwnt area, with the expectations of great seascape views over Cardigan Bay. The weather forecast for the day was fine with some light cloud cover. The walk started in bright sunshine from the school in Ferwig just two miles north of Cardigan, and from there they followed a quiet country road northwards for about a mile, passing Bolafron Farm and Penfeidr, Ty’r Yet, and a duck pond to the end of the road at Nantycroy. Here they picked up a bridleway and contoured around the side of a hill for about half a mile before joining the coast path near Ogof Filiast. There was great disappointment here as there should have been some fantastic views out over Cardigan Bay and Traeth Mwnt but everything was hidden in thick sea mist. They then turned eastward to follow the coast path for about half a mile along the cliff tops around Hatling Fawr and although they could hear the sea seventy metres below they were unable to see it due to the mist. As they approached the visitor centre in Mwnt they stopped whilst Eric related some history of the area, and as he did so the mist cleared slightly to briefly reveal Foel-y-Mwnt on the opposite side of the beach just a few hundred yards away and people on the beach below. They stopped for lunch on the convenient bank near the limekiln overlooking the National Trust’s Traeth y Mwnt. At this point Jenny asked all the walkers individually “How far is Mwnt from London” and recorded the replies.
In the afternoon they moved on with the intention of visiting the church - Eglwys y Crog - an example of a medieval sailor’s chapel of ease, which is believed to have been built in the 13th or 14th century. However, they were due for another disappointment as the church was about to be used for a wedding ceremony but as compensation they stayed to watch the beautiful bride arrive in a shiny beige landrover. At this point the left the coast path and turned inland passing through Ty-gwyn as they followed a footpath on an uphill climb that took them out of the mist into the heat of the day as they passed Craig-y-Mwnt to reach a country road. Changing direction again, they now headed in a southwesterly direction as they followed the road for about two miles back to Ferwig. At a road junction just before they returned to the car park to complete the walk, Jenny pointed out a very old looking sign on the side of a private outhouse building - a circular black and yellow sign with Verwig written right across the centre and beneath it the distance to London from Ferwig (235 miles).
