Stile Removal and Replacement

19 March 2014

The National Park Authority has removed or replaced (with gates) more than 450 stiles on the 186 mile Pembrokeshire Coast Path since the early 1990s and is continuing to remove them wherever possible.  Around 45 are left to cross, and there are now many long stile-free sections for Path users to enjoy, including:

Amroth to Skrinkle - 12 miles

Manorbier to Stack Rocks - 13.5 miles

Sheep Island to Bullwell Bay - 7 miles  

Pembroke to Penberi - 65 miles  

Aber-pwll (west of Abereiddi) to Pwllderi - 13 miles

Southwest of Strumble Head to east of Fishguard Fort - 9 miles

Garn Llwyd to Hescwm - 3 miles

Newport and Estuary - 3.5 miles

Removal of stiles represents a significant improvement in accessibility for people with mobility difficulties.  The 'Planning a trip' section has details of the numbers of stiles on each section and whether they are accessible to average size dogs.
