Our Projects - Penberth Stepping Stones
The lower part of the Penberth Valley, near Treen and St Levan is owned by the National Trust, whilst the slipway is leased to a collective of local fishermen. A dog ban is in place across the slipway to remove the potential for contamination of fish catches. This requires dog walkers to divert across the ford upstream, by an existing clapper bridge or by a longer route using footpaths and public roads. Thanks to funds raised by the South West Coast Path Association and from the Unlocking our Coastal Heritage project, the project was able to provide a more direct route across the river for dog walkers by installing stepping stones across the river just above the ford.
