Brunel Trail - Pembroke

The Brunel Trail is a popular shared-use and traffic-free path linking Neyland – once the western terminus of Brunel’s Great Western Railway – with Johnston and Haverfordwest.

Starting near the colourful array of yachts at Neyland Marina, the route follows the picturesque Cleddau Estuary through the attractive broadleaved woodland of Westfield Pill Nature Reserve before continuing along the old Great Western Railway line to Johnston. This railway line was built between 1852 and 1856 under the direction of Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the most famous of all Victorian engineers.

From Johnston, you can continue along Route 4 northwards for around 4 miles to Haverfordwest where you will find a wide range of shops (including bike hire), cafés and restaurants, as well as ruins of a castle and a priory.
