Saints & Stones on the Cemais Route

There’s a new adventure awaiting pilgrims and tourists alike when they visit the southern shores of Cardigan Bay this summer.

It’s a trail that takes in a wealth of the area’s ancient (and not so ancient) history and heritage.

11NHV110710 006The Cemais Route, as it’s known, is the latest of a series of trails devised by the Saints & Stones group, a charitable organisation based in the diocese of St Davids

The new trail was officially launched by the Bishop of St Davids, Rt Revd Joanna Penberthy, at a service in St Brynach’s Church, Nevern, which is one of the stops on the trail.
