Porthgain to Middle Mil

Porthgain to Middle

12 miles easy

Porthgain is a fascinating little fishing village set behind a small sheltered inlet on the north coast where a small enclosed harbour was constructed in the nineteenth century for the stone quarry west of the village.  There is only one road into and out of Porthgain and this takes you to the crossroads at Llanrhian where you turn right for the back road into St. Davids.  Follow this tiny open lane for 4 miles past the two right turns to Abereiddy.  Take the next sharp right until you reach the B4583.  Go straight across and look for the first right that takes you past the ruined Bishops Palace to a ford right in front of St Davids cathedral.  Through the ford the road takes you under an impressive stone gateway to the centre of St,Davids, Britains smallest City.  Cross the square and take the A487 Haverfordwest road, Turn left by the secondary school onto a lane that takes you to Whitchurch and on to Middle Mill, a picturesque village with a working weaving mill that is open to the public.  From the mill a lovely lane, with woods to your right and a stream to your left, takes you down to Solva, one of the gems of north Pembrokeshire.  The fishing village at the end of a long sheltered inlet makes an ideal finish to this ride with a choice of pubs and shops to visit before you rest your feet in the soothing sea water.
