walk to the right, follow a small path
until you come to a pembrokeshire

Descend the steps and follow the
path down, there is a rocky entrance,
but well worth it to see the beach, the cavern,s are an extra bonus.

Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night

Do not go gentle into that good night,
Old age should burn and rave at close of day;
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Though wise men at their end know dark is right,
Because their words had forked no lightning they
Do not go gentle into that good night.

Good men, the last wave by, crying how bright
Their frail deeds might have danced in a green bay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.
Wild men who caught and sang the sun in flight,
And learn, too late, they grieved it on its way,
Do not go gentle into that good night.

Grave men, near death, who see with blinding sight
Blind eyes could blaze like meteors and be gay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

And you, my father, there on the sad height,
Curse, bless, me now with your fierce tears, I pray.
Do not go gentle into that good night.
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

St Govan,s Chapel-Pembrokeshire.

St Govan,s Chapel is nestled amongst
the rocks, very picturesque and is close
to a car park.

It has a  flight of steps to go down, not for the weak hearted going back up!!!

It is said the number of steps counted are never the same as going down as going back up!!!

The Chapel is dedicated to St Govan, an Irish Abbot of the Sixth Century.

According to Legend he escaped from Pirates by landing here and hiding in a crack in the rocks which miraculously opened to conceal him.

The views along the coast are sensational.
