Village

Details

The village of Crymych in north-east Pembrokeshire has a population of around 400 and situated about 800 feet above sea level at the eastern end of the Preseli Mountains on the A478 road from Tenby to Cardigan. Other than the Crymych Arms pub, little existed here before the arrival of the Whitland to Cardigan railway in 1874 when the village grew as a service and transport centre for the surrounding uplands.

Crymych is the best starting point for a walk over the Preselis called The Golden Road, an ancient track way along the ridge of the mountains. Highlights on the route includes Foel Drygarn, a Bronze Age and Iron Age hill fort and Carn Menyn where you can see outcrops of spotted dolerite, thought to be the place from where the Stonehenge Bluestone originates. Nearby, Y Freni Fawr presents a challenging walk to its summit at 1300 feet where Roman Emperor Magnus Maximus allegedly came to hunt.
