Templeton Airfield Interior Circular Walk
Templeton Airfield was one of a number of airfields constructed in Pembrokeshire as part of the UK's defences during WWII - Milford Haven was an important port that needed protection. Although no buildings remain, the runways can still be seen and give an idea of the size of the airfield. These days the main activity is sheep grazing!
Set in the middle of typical Pembrokeshire landscape this walk, which is part of Pembrokeshire County Council's multi-user route, is fairly flat with the majority of surfaces being stone or tarmac, with some grassland. It is therefore suitable for people of all ages and abilities. Ideal for families with, perhaps, small bikes and push chairs as well as older persons who like easy, none too strenuous walks.
