Geocache Description:

This is a full Cache, a Small 0.25l Clip Lock Container that has it's own logbook, pencils and sharpener (as opposed to our Micro Cache 'Harbour Heights'). It has enough room for small swaps, TB's and GeoCoins. It is similar in size to 'Muggles Ahoy' which we loved visiting. It is accessible from the carpark as you stroll around the Harbour.

History of the Harbour?............ 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: & at 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.
