Train crossing viaductHeart of Wales Line Trail

Carmarthenshire, Powys, Shropshire, Swansea

230 km / 143 miles
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.

There are some 30 stations between Craven Arms and Llanelli and all but four are linked by the route.

The complete trail was officially opened in 2019 although development work started in 2017 and used crowd funding to help build the trail. It is a project of the Heart of Wales Line Development Company, a consortium of local authorities, the rail industry, development, tourism and user agencies.
