Take a ride on our Heritage Land Train, keeping alive the rich coal-mining history of Saundersfoot,.
The train travels from the harbour around the village and on to the Coppet Hall beach centre. Passengers will be able to enjoy an audio commentary about the coal heritage of the area, along with some scenic views, as they take their seats for the 30-minute ride on board The Rosalind, named after the last train to carry miners and coal to and from the harbour.
The pilot project has been made possible by the Saundersfoot Village Working Party (SVWP), made up of representatives from the village’s community council, harbour, Chamber for Tourism and Hean Castle Estates. The group successfully applied for a grant from Planed, and has entered into a partnership with Edwards Coaches, who will be operating the service. The Rosalind takes to the road at the end of May, and runs at weekends until September, and every day during school holidays. It is signposted by the image of young coal miner Tomos, who is the figurehead of the Saundersfoot Heritage Trail.
The aim of the initiative is to improve and enhance knowledge of local history and to support and encourage tourism in Saundersfoot Bay by creating links and promoting the heritage of the communities of Saundersfoot, Wiseman’s Bridge and Amroth.
