Neyland is situated on the northern bank of the River Cleddau in Pembrokeshire and has a vibrant community of around 3000 residents. It’s a friendly place which grew up around the coming of the railway back in the 1850’s and has a rich history. It is twinned with Sanguinet in France.
Isambard Kingdom Brunel brought the railway to West Wales and is often regarded as the founder of Neyland Town.
Neyland is also known for its Marina, spectacularly located within the stunning Pembrokeshire Coast National Park.
