Llanrhystud Heritage Trail Guide
Welcome to Llanrhystud a village with a very intresting history.
The walk for the most part will be along the village roads which are currently in use so where there is no pavement please be aware of approaching traffic. The track to the Lime Kilns will be along a stretch of the coastal path which is eroded causing walkers to walk along the shingle beach for a short distance. There will be two stiles to cross. The trail is about two miles and should take around one and a half to two hours to complete. Read more >>
