Mill Pond Circular Walk (Pembroke)
Pembroke Mill Pond was divided in two by a railway embankment in the mid 19th century and a walk around the two halves affords very different but interesting experiences. The eastern sector teems with fascinating flora and fauna whilst the western section lies at the heart of medieval Pembroke which is dominated by the Norman Castle.
