Saundersfoot Bay Community Land Train

Natural and cultural resources

Project Description:

The main aim of the project is to provide a land train service benefitting local communities and visitors, highlighting tourism, heritage and culture, which will increase and promote tourism throughout the local areas, linking communities and amenities. Whilst delivering an innovative, and completely new, heritage based tourism attraction, the project will improve and enhance knowlegde of our local history, and will be sustainable and accessible to all.

Project Achievements:

The land train should enhance the experience of visitors and residents alike, promote tourism and associated job/business security and creation of other village based opportunities; and will aim to promote the linking and development of the three communities in Saunderfoot Bay, ie Saundersfoot, Amroth and Wiseman’s Bridge, and complement and support the initiatives already planned and/or being delivered in the area; be sustainable, cost effective and financially viable.

We believe our project will, over the coming years, provide sustainable and innovative transport links between local communities, whilst using digital technology, and will enhance the local environment.

Project Beneficiaries:

The pilot project will be based in Saundersfoot, but will benefit all Saundersfoot Bay communities and visitors to the area. Being fully accessible, our train will allow those people previously excluded, due to physical disadvantages and mobility issues, to enjoy easy access to the village and surrounding areas.
