Maidenhall car park, grid ref SM857202
Starting at Maidenhall car park, cross over the road and turn left through the field gate. Walk along the edge of the field until you reach a marker post. From there, follow the green arrows away from the coast and through several fields rich in wildlife.
Continue along the path marked with green arrows. You'll pass through Trefrane farm, where you may see cattle or ponies grazing. Take a moment to admire the views back towards Southwood farm and over Newgale beach. Carry on through the grassland fields, which are carefully managed for wildlife.
After you've walked through the thick blackthorn hedge, with a great view of Southwood farm in the distance, turn right and take the field gate onto the road. Cross the road and enter Folkeston farm.
Follow the waymarkers to the wooded valley edge, where another wooden pedestrian gate will take you into the next field. About 350m across the field, follow the green arrows downhill to a crossing over a shallow stream.
After crossing the stream, carry on up the slight incline and through an area where rushes grow. You'll find cattle and sheep grazing here to keep the habitat in great condition. Continue through an inlet gate and on to the wooden pedestrian gate at the far hedge.
Go through the gate and continue to the right. You're now walking in an area fenced off from livestock to protect and widen our boundary hedgerows, allowing wildlife to flourish. Much of this infrastructure was funded by the People's Postcode Lottery and delivered by National Trust Rangers in 2021.
As you exit the fenced corridor, carry on straight ahead, through the inlet gate and along the lane, where you'll leave National Trust land.
At the junction with the road, you can go left or right. Turn left, and after about 30m you'll find a public right of way on your lefthand side that will lead you back to the village of Roch. Turn right, and carry on along the road, and you'll reach the coastal village of Nolton Haven.
