About The Walking Tour

The Llanpumpsaint Heritage Walking Tour which starts at the Village Hall is 1.5 miles long and takes approximately an hour. It is more or less on the flat with only a slight elevation near the railway bridge. The main walk is along tarmac roads so no special footwear is called for.

The Optional Extension

There is an option at about the halfway mark to extend the walking tour outside the village to the area known as Ystum Gwili and this adds another 3 miles and involves a walk uphill and across fields so it's recommended that stout shoes are worn if you take this option. The optional extension should add another two hours to the time that it takes to walk the tour. The points of interest on the extension are marked below in yellow.
