|Route outline (key)|
We turn off the A4139 at Bier Cross and head south. The road initially was part of the A-road until that road was straightened but after the first road junction we are on the B4585 proper. We continue along a narrow road between high hedges, with the fields to either side largely invisible. The road quickly enters Manorbier and becomes built-up. Although the houses are modern to begin with we soon reach the old village centre. A couple of bends take us to the entrance to the castle, after which a road bears off right towards the beach. There are two identical road signs here pointing in opposite directions along the B4585 - as indeed traffic may go either way to get to the same point.
We pass below the community centre before heading east past a café and pub. The road now widens as we reenter the suburbs and then reach open country as an S2. After passing a turn for a beach and youth hostel we pass the former military accommodation at Skrinkle before bearing left to return to the A4139.
