This cache has been archived.

Andalusite: This cache has been missing for some time and as the owner has not responded to recent logs or logged into geocaching.com for some time I am archiving it.

Guidelines:[i] "You are responsible for occasional visits to your cache to maintain proper working order, especially when someone reports a problem with the cache (missing, damaged, wet, etc.). You may temporarily disable your cache to let others know not to search for it until you have a chance to fix the problem. This feature is to allow you a reasonable amount of time - normally a few weeks - in which to check on your cache. If a cache is not being maintained, or has been temporarily disabled for an unreasonable length of time, we may archive the listing."[/i]

Geocache Description:

A simple Micro-Mirco Cache that gives you the best elevated view of Saundersfoot Harbour. The Cache is accessible from the pavement, although you have to walk about 100 metres up the steep hill to get to it as there is no nearby parking to enable a quick Cache'n'Dash. The actual cache is a small breath mint container that contains only a log, so you need to bring your own pen/pencil.

This Cache is overlooking one of the most visited places in Wales - and we think one of the best!
Why is the Harbour here? Well then........ During the 1800's high quality anthracite coal was discovered in the Saundersfoot area. Such was the demand for this coal that in 1829 Saundersfoot Harbour was built and connected by rail to six mines. The village grew up to serve the port. The industry finally faded away in the early years of the twentieth century, and the village took advantage of the nearby Saundersfoot railway station to attract tourists from eastern Wales and England. Nothing remains of the mines but the route of the tramway that was built to bring the coal to Saundersfoot harbour has created one of the most fascinating sections of The Coast Path.
Today Saundersfoot Information Centre (Tel: 01834 813672, Email: saundersfoot.tic@pembrokeshire.gov.uk & at www.pembrokeshire.gov.uk) is housed in what was once Bonville's Court Colliery Office where important documents were kept regarding the industry. The centre is easy to locate as the Colliery Office was built on the Harbour. Continue east along The Strand towards Coppet Hall beach, which is reached via a short tunnel. On the far side of Coppet Hall beach are two further tunnels and a wide flat path that is perfect for pushchairs and wheelchairs. This takes you to Wisemans Bridge. If you want to continue along the old tramway it will head inland through the woods to Stepaside where the remains of the old ironworks can be explored.
