Wisemans Bridge is a small hamlet and holiday resort on the Pembrokeshire Coast Path between Amroth and Saundersfoot in Pembrokeshire, Wales. It is part of the community and parish of Amroth.[1]

History[edit]

In the 19th century local high-quality coal was shipped out of Wisemans Bridge in vessels of 50 or 60 tons.[2] The footpath linking Wisemans Bridge and Coppet Hall beach was once a railway track used to transport coal to Saundersfoot Harbour.[3][4]

In 1943, Winston Churchill visited the area as the allies practised for the D Day landings.[5]
