New walking trail opens alongside River Teifi in Newcastle Emlyn
Locals and holidaymakers can enjoy stunning views of the Teifi Valley with the opening of a new trail.
More than 600m of rough path next to the Teifi River in Newcastle Emlyn is being transformed by the council thanks to a £65,800 grant from the Rights of Way Improvement Plan Funding Programme.
The new all weather surfaced path will give greater accessibility for all.
The beginning of the trail includes a walled entrance; there will be interpretation panels along the path and new seating so that walkers can enjoy the spectacular views of the Teifi Valley. New leaflets are being produced and the Castle Street Picnic area will also benefit with improved access and new benches.
The scheme is being delivered by Carmarthenshire County Council and managed by Natural Resources Wales.
County executive board member for regeneration and leisure Cllr Meryl Gravell said: “We are delighted that we have been able to secure funding to carry out this project which will improve accessibility to the path so that everybody has the opportunity to discover this hidden gems.”
The project has also received funding through the Rural Development Plan for Wales 2007 – 2013 and the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development which is funded by the Welsh Government and European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development.
