This is the first of two articles about the Saundersfoot Railway and it focusses on the line running North out of Saundersfoot via Wiseman's Bridge to Stepaside....

This is the fourth article about Pembrokeshire's Railways. The first focussed on the pre-railway age, the second focussed on the mainline railways of the county. The third article focussed on the industrial railways in the vicinity of Milford Haven. ....

That answers some questions. While the Pembrokeshire coast path was in 'prototype' form, I walked it as one of a party of six, commencing from Saundersfoot. Having gone for the obligatory paddle on getting off the train (to amuse the 3 girls) we could see the narrow anthracite seams on the beach, and the remnants of the mining railway which we followed on our walk to the Youth Hostel, then about a quarter mile West of Saundersfoot station - it may well still be in that location - and I was quite impressed at the low ceiling of the one tunnel bore we saw.

Local knowledge was limited, the YH warden was a relief so barely knew the area, and we were striding away to Freshwater early the next morning (the whole route very strongly recommended for anyone who likes a bracing seaside walk and swimming in stunning coastal scenery). And now near fifty years on, the answers.. Thanks Roger.
