Rock fall closes Pembrokeshire coastal path

Following Storm Ciaran which hit Pembrokeshire on November 2nd 2023, rock falls have occurred onto the shared use coastal path between Wisemans Bridge and Coppet Hall.

The path has subsequently been closed to ensure the safety of the general public, and the rock face now needs to be made safe during this winter period.

The Council is organising a specialist to assess the cliff face above the path and a geotechnical expert to review the area, in order to consider means to make the area safe. This may lead to the need for further cliff stabilisation work.

A Council spokesperson said: “We are sorry the path has been closed, but this is necessary on safety grounds. The path remains closed due of the high risk of further unpredictable rock falls.  We would please ask all users to respect the closure and use the path diversion that is in place”.

It is anticipated the path will be closed over Christmas and is likely to be closed for a number of months into the New Year.
