Ferryside
Carmarthenshire County Council - [Ferryside] has grown up around an ancient route - and a new one. The old route is the Ferry across to Llansteffan, from which the settlement takes its name. The new one is the Great Western railway built by Isambard Kingdom Brunel and opened in 1852. At first the rails were laid directly onto the shingle, to Brunel's broad gauge. A sea defence had to be constructed to protect the line and it was rebuilt upon an embankment. Ferryside continued to develop as a fishing village, a 'watering place' and a place for genteel retirement...
