What once was busy,
Resting, now, from endless toil.
The old tram road at Clyne woods in Swansea has now been redeveloped as a cycle track designated as Route 4 by Sustrans.
The route links London with Fishguard, in South West Wales, which is one of the departure points for the ferry to Ireland. It means that environmentally friendly and health-conscious tourists can cycle all the way, except for the ferry crossing.
Part of the tram road has been left in place as a tribute to the industrial and coal heritage of South Wales.
Heritage is one thing that gives us a sense of identity. Maybe preserving everything is not practical. But the memories will serve us well.
