We are working to build-up a picture of what routes look like. To do that we are asking volunteers to survey routes so that we can communicate features, obstacles and challenges that may make a route desirable or not.

Slow Ways surveyors are asked to complete some basic online training, but they are not vetted. If you are dependent on the survey information being correct in order to complete a route, we recommend that you think critically about the information provided. You may also wish to wait until more than one survey has been completed.

Help people know more about this route by volunteering to submit a survey.

April 2023. Direction: Cardiff to Dinas Powis.

A pleasant, easy and varied walk, taking in the barrage half of the Cardiff Bay walk, a lovely stretch of coastal walking along the Penarth promenade and cliff tops and Cosmeston Lake and Country Park before the last stretch through lanes and fields on the way into Dinas Powis.

The terrain is mostly paved or well maintained tracks until the section leaving Sully Road to cross the fields to Cross Common Road in Dinas Powis, where there are styles and a muddy lane and fields to cross. An alternative to this section for wheelers would be to turn right before the first style and go into Dina Powis along Watery Lane. There are also some stepped sections in Penarth (leading up to St. Augustine`s Church and at the end of the steep lane leading on to Beach Road), but there are alternative routes here following the streets.

A good route with very varied scenery. The route is indistinct or muddy in places but enjoyable.

Nice walk, a mixture of country park, suburban Penarth, clifftop and esplanade, then a stroll round the Cardiff barrage.

Not at all challenging.
