Wisemans Bridge Beach - Pembrokeshire

Tunnel - the first of three

This tunnel is the first of three cut through to the beach at Coppet Hall and from there there is one short tunnel through to Saundersfoot. The tunnels were cut to allow the coal, iron and bricks to be transported initially by horse and cart and in later years by steam train to the harbour at Saundersfoot. The main industrial developments were inland (north) of Wiseman's Bridge at Grove Colliery and Kilerry Iron Works. The old miners' train track is now a delightful pedestrian and cycling route.
