The Preseli Mountains in Pembrokeshire
The Preseli Hills or, as they are known locally and historically, Preseli Mountains is a range of hills in north Pembrokeshire. The landscape is wild moorland, heath and grassland and has been compared with Dartmoor in Devon.
The hills are the ideal location for some great walking away from the coastline with the best views in Pembrokeshire, across the sea to Ireland and Snowdonia, if it’s a clear day.
The Golden Road (8 miles long), is an ancient track across The Preselis said to date back to the Neolithic period, 5,000 years ago and to have been the main route for travellers in prehistory to and from Ireland.
There are prehistoric remains, burial cairns dating back to the bronze age, Iron Age hill forts and an arrangement of stones in the shape of an eye known as Beddarthur and legend has it that it’s the resting place of King Arthur. Who knows?
In 1923 the petrologist Herbert Henry Thomas identified that bluestone from the hills corresponded to that used to build the inner circle of Stonehenge. There is something truly magical about these rocks. Maybe that’s why they were used in the construction of Stonehenge in around 2300BC. How did the rocks get to Stonehenge? well, that's another story!
