Distance: 8.5km

Duration: 3.5 hours estimated

This summer, join us to explore some of Wales’s most exciting, and vulnerable, coastal archaeology sites. CHERISH’s team of experts will be leading outreach events from May to September at archaeological and environmental sites which are being affected by climate change.

Explore climate change and archaeology at the edge of Wales
The CHERISH team will be leading a walk from Marloes to the Deer Park, and back again.
Along the way there will be chance to see the wreck of the Albion paddle steamer and two prehistoric promontory forts.
 
We’ll hear about coastal people’s interaction with the sea through time, and the effects of climate change on this heritage today.
 
The walk will take in some amazing views of the islands and wildlife along the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path.
 
We’ll be guided by Julian Whitewright, Maritime Archaeologist for the
Royal Commission for Ancient and Historic Monuments of Wales.
 
There will be other archaeologists from the CHERISH team to chat to about the coastal archaeology and why we are working in the area today.
 
We’ll finish back at Marloes car park, where there is a cafe and toilets, or you
could bring a picnic to finish the day.
