Good deeds in Goodwick

Walkers have school pupils to thank for easy rail access to the Wales Coast Path in north Pembrokeshire. The ...

station in Goodwick, near Fishguard, shut in 1964. Passenger trains to Fishguard Harbour continued but weren't much use to residents or people visiting this beautiful stretch of the coast. In 2009 pupils in Moylegrove started a petition calling for better rail services. The Welsh Government  agreed, and Pembrokeshire council organised a rapid rebuild of the station, which is adjacent to the western starting point of National Cycle Network Route 4 to Newport and London.
