New access paves the way to Skrinkle Haven

20th August 2013
A badly eroded access road to a popular South Pembrokeshire beauty spot has recently been restored, greatly benefitting locals and visitors.  
 
The Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Authority has recently undertaken road repairs to a conservation site in Skrinkle Haven. National Park Authority Technical Officer Steve Brick said: “The access road is owned by the National Park Authority, and we have had requests to improve the road after the past two heavy winters, which have greatly accelerated the erosion to the surface.

“We had also received a request from the local Community Council to improve the route for cyclists and wheelchair users and to link the village with Skrinkle Haven Youth Hostel and the local community centre.

“The Ministry of Defence generously provided match funding of £13,000, which enabled the Authority to proceed with a lasting surface upgrade in March, working with local contractors G D Harries.

The Church Doors staircase, which is accessed via the Pembrokeshire Coast Path National Trail near Skrinkle Haven has also recently benefitted from £5,000 of Wales Coast Path funding via Natural Resources Wales and the European Regional Development Fund.
