You can now view the Pembrokeshire Coast Path National Trail from your computer, mobile or tablet after the walking route was added to Google Street View.

Google loaned the National Park Authority one of its back-pack mounted Google Trekker cameras last spring.

The task meant filmmakers had to be physically fit because the camera and equipment weighed 25kg, about the same as a sack of potatoes. Two of the Park Authority’s Wardens were up to the task, with Alex Payne and Ainsley Corp swapping their mowers and strimmers for the Trekker.

One of the main challenges was finding enough dry, bright and sunny days to film. We all had to be flexible and jump in at short notice, seizing every fine day to film. In the end it took 28 days, between April and June, but it’s worth it as it shows the National Park at its absolute best.
