THE 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 Amroth.
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.
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
beach.

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 Harbour and
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 from you.
Please contact:

email: tsbhrt@gmail.com or phone: 07966792752
