Route information

This was once a railway line, initially horse-powered, so no obvious gradient and is suitable for prams. With exception of tunnels the section from Coppit Hall to Wiseman’s Bridge, tiny seaside hamlet with a rocky beach.  This walk has fantastic uninterrupted views over Saundersfoot Bay.
