INDUSTRIAL HERITAGE IN SAUNDERSFOOT BAY DURING THE
1800s and early 1900s
WALK THE WALK
You may have noticed the picture of a boy from a long
gone age as you walk
along the Strand in Saundersfoot or by the front in
We have called him TOMOS, and he was one of the young
boys growing up
in Saundersfoot Bay when it looked quite different
from the way it is known
and enjoyed today.
Over the last two and a half years, the Saundersfoot
Bay Heritage and
Regeneration Trust, have worked to revive the Bay’s
local history and
heritage; initially focussing on the vast industrial
wealth and development of
Saundersfoot and its Bay, created by the mining of
Coal seams can still be seen on the beaches, especially
on the stretch
between Amroth and Wiseman’s Bridge. This precious
commodity in its day,
was formed millions of years ago from forests which
are now submerged by
the sea. The remains of these forests can still be
seen at low tide on Amroth
The story of coal and its impact on Saundersfoot Bay
is a fascinating and
interesting story. There are several projects planned
in Saundersfoot to
promote and safeguard the area’s industrial
past, and one way we have
begun to capture this particular period of history
is through an INFORMATIVE
WALK which takes in the key sites (still very evident
today). The long circular
Walk - BLACK route (about 9 miles), begins at Saundersfoot
takes the walker on an interesting and varied route
around the Bay. Our
character TOMOS, shows you the way, and helps to create
a picture for you
of the Saundersfoot Bay as it was in his life time,
in the late 1800’s. For those
of you preferring a shorter, easier walk, simply follow
the GREEN route. (This
one is also accessible for wheelchairs or pushchairs.)
*We are planning a permanent exhibition to be housed
at Colby Woodland
Garden (above the Bothy Tea-room), which will promote
the history of Colby,
in particular the significant impact of the Coal Industry
both at Colby and the
surrounding area. If you have any information /stories
from grandparents or
family /artefacts or anything that you feel may be
of interest that could be
included in the exhibition, we would love to hear
or phone: 07966792752
For further information on the Walk, information and
directions to download,
