The Wales Coast Path nears completion, with two more walking routes being completed in Gwynedd and Chepstow.

Taith Ardudwy Way covers 16 miles in south Gwynedd using existing footpaths and is said to take three days to complete across three sections.

Meanwhile in the south, a 5.9 mile section from Chepstow, Monmouthshire snaking its way from Chepstow to the Severn Estuary has just opened.

The Wales Coast Path is due to be completed by May 2012 and will link up 850 miles of walking routes along the Welsh coastline for everyone to enjoy.

I've been lucky enough to have already walked some of the coast path whilst filming Weatherman Walking and it's a stunning addition to an already breathtaking landscape, right on our front doorstep (give or take a few miles).
