On Sunday 6th October, the Carmarthen Ramblers had a nine-and-a-half-mile circular walk in the northernmost tip of Pembrokeshire starting in Poppit where the river Teifi meets the sea. This walk comprised a five-mile section of the coast path with an inland return along tracks and paths. Along the route, there were great views over the Teifi estuary, Poppit sands with its incoming tide and Cardigan Bay and some fantastic rock formations in the cliffs. On the clifftop path was an interesting display of many interesting looking, plate-sized fungi. The weather was fine but there was a stiff onshore wind blowing.

The walk started from the car park in Poppit Sands from where the immediately picked up the coast path and followed a quiet country road for just over a mile in a north-westerly direction climbing steadily until they reached the end of the road at Ty Canol.

They passed through the farmyard and out onto the coastal footpath beyond onto a peninsular for about a quarter of a mile to reach Cemaes Head where there were great views up the Cardigan coastline towards Aberystwyth with Cardigan Island on the opposite side of the Teifi and southwards towards Fishguard. Here the path took a ninety-degree turn to the left as they headed southwards towards Moylegrove on a quite strenuous section for about four miles as the path dropped and climbed several times as it passed Traeth Godir-coch and Traeth Y Rhedyn and some fantastic rock formations.

Just before Moylegrove at Ceibwr Bay, they left the coast path and turned inland at Ynys Fach onto a track that took them through the farmyard of Tre-Rhys and onto a bridleway beyond for about half a mile before taking a footpath into the farmyard of Granant-isaf. At this farm, they were able to pick up another bridleway for a further half mile to meet a country road near Bugeilfa.

The group walked down the road to reach Gerizim Chapel (built-in 1848) in the hamlet of Cippyn. They stopped awhile to view the chapel which must have been a fine building in its time but sadly is now falling into a state of disrepair with rotting window frames and roof.

A few metres down the road they left the road for a footpath that led down into woodland in a valley that took them around the perimeter of the Caravan and Camping site back onto the country road just a few metres from the car park and the start of the walk.


Poppit is a small, dispersed settlement which lies on the southern side of the estuary of the River Teifi, near Cardigan, in northern Pembrokeshire. It is primarily known for its popular sandy beach, called Poppit Sands, sometimes Poppit Sands Beach, which adjoins St. Dogmaels beach at its eastern estuary end. The beach offers views across the estuary and bay towards Gwbert and Cardigan Island, and the nearest village is St Dogmels, 1½ miles away. The beach backed by low dunes, the top of the beach comprises about 80m of dry, very loose sand, making it very popular with families. Lower down it is hard-packed. The beach slopes gently, and therefore the sea is shallow for quite a long way out. Even at high tide, there is plenty of soft sand exposed. On the eastern side of the dunes, erosion has formed sand cliffs over 4 metres (13 feet) high. New dunes are now building up close to the access boardwalk. When the tide is fully out, the flats at the far south-eastern end (known as Cardigan Bar) extend for nearly a mile and almost reach Gwbert on the other side. However, due to the estuary, there are unpredictable currents at this end of the beach. At the north-western end of the beach, there are rock pools which support a myriad of sea-life.

Capel Gerizim at Cippyn Baptist chapel on an elevated spot on a quiet lane between Moylegrove and St Dogmael's in North Pembrokeshire. Mount Gerizim, or Cerizim, in Samaria is mentioned in the Old Testament as the place where God was to pronounce a blessing upon the Jewish people and it remains a sacred place for the Samaritan people.
