Our previous chairman Professor Les Lumsdon is closely involved in developing an innovative railway based walking trail. Following a feasibility study, the go-ahead has been given for implementing this new exciting project. Trail in the Making will start in the old railway town of Craven Arms and will meander via existing public rights of way along the route of the Heart of Wales Line to the salt marshes of the Loughor Estuary and the Millennium Coastal Park at Llanelli. It will be suitable for people looking for a long distance challenge, but equally, those who wish to walk the trail in sections, using the train to access day or weekend walks and using local shops, cafes, pubs and overnight accommodation along the way.

For further information and donations to the trail development fund, contact Les Lumsdon on leslumsdon@hotmail.com.
