Wales Area 12: Castlemartin to Angle, South Pembrokeshire

CHERISH Project Wales Area 12 Stackpole Warren

Area 12 encompasses the significant south Pembrokeshire coastal landscapes stretching from West Angle Bay and Sheep Island in the west, across the sweep of Freshwater West to the Castlemartin Training Area and Stackpole Warren in the east. The major coastal dune system of Stackpole Warren and the Castlemartin Corse wetland will be the focus of new research and palaeoenvironmental fieldwork including luminescence dating. A sample of the most important eroding coastal promontory forts including previously surveyed sites at Linney Head Camp and Flimston Bay Camp will be studied to monitor their rates of erosion and to recover datable evidence of their history and development.
