Freshwater West, Pembrokeshire, 16th March 2016
Freshwater West had changed a lot again since my last visit a few weeks ago. The sand has almost covered the ruggedness of the beach that was discovered during the severe storms of the winter. Remnants of World War Two & the wrecks are practically not visible, if not all traces covered again, waiting to be uncovered perhaps in the coming years when another storm as severe as the winter just passed will visit back in years to come.
One feature that has been added to the beach recently is the upgrade of the water overflow that helps to create a new wetland at Gupton fields. It may be me, but it seems to be ruining the beach somewhat with a more powerful stream of water coming through or it could be just the excess rain recently that may be overrunning it, the only way to find out is to revisit it in the summer months.
