Pembrokeshire. The Pembrokeshire Coast National Park was designated in 1952 and remains the only UK national park recognised primarily for its coastline. It boasts some of the most spectacular scenery and diverse wildlife in Britain. It stretches from the resorts of Saundersfoot and Tenby in the south to Cardigan in the north an area of 243 sq miles. The Pembrokeshire Coastal Path is a 180 mile walking trail.
Close to the village of Lydstep are Skrinkle Haven and Church Doors, two small coves separated by a limestone headland. Church Doors is a small sand and rocky cove where magnificent towering cliffs have been cut by the forces of the sea in to a huge ‘door’. The cove is easily reached via a metal staircase from the coastal path.
The arch has a span of 9 ft and a height of 45 ft.
