The Heart of Wales Line Trail is a 141 mile long-distance trail made up of 16 sections. It weaves between the stations along this scenic railway line, through remote villages, spa towns and rural landscapes of Shropshire, Powys, Carmarthenshire and Swansea. The walking sections range in length from 7km to 25km, each one achievable in a day, albeit long ones in some instances. The whole trail can be done without the use of the car if you plan carefully and check the trains on the day. Some walkers use their car to go to the end destination, catch the train to the starting point and walk back. Whichever way it’s done, each section is a lovely route to be savoured at leisure, a bit like the train service itself.

I will offer walks along the line periodically or if you would like to be guided on sections of this trail I can help with planning in terms of train times and walk timings. I am a member of the trail steering group so have lots of insight into how it was developed by volunteers and how it would like to grow in the future. Cost will vary based on length of walk and size of group.

10% of all revenue from Heart of Wales Line Trail guided walks will be donated to the Trail to support its upkeep.
