Heart of Wales Line Trail

230 km / 143 miles

Carmarthenshire, Powys, Shropshire, Swansea
This is a new Trail (2017) in the making, as an innovative railway-based walking trail weaving between stations along the Heart of Wales Line. Starting in the old railway town of Craven Arms, the trail crosses a diverse range of landscapes from pastoral farming through to remote uplands, and from mixed broadleaved woodlands to the estuarial saltmarshes of the Loughor Valley en-route to the Millennium Coastal Park at Llanelli.

It is a project of the Heart of Wales Line development company, a consortium of local authorities, development and tourism and user agencies and the rail industry, working together to promote and develop this beautiful railway line. As part of its funding plan, it has a crowd funding campaign to finance and install good quality infrastructure for the trail and make sure that it is properly sign posted, maintained and promoted and donations are invited. Send a cheque to Howlta, PO Box 778, Swansea, SA4 5DL; write 'trail' on the back of the cheque and give name and address of donor.

It passes through three of Walkers are Welcome towns.
