The Mumbles Railway The first ever passenger railway train service in the world was the Mumbles Railway. Operating around the edge of Swansea Bay between Mumbles Pier and Swansea Town, it ran for about 6 miles each way and was originally drawn by horses, then steam power and eventually electric overhead cables. Closed in the early 1960's there is still talk of bringing it back ! In its place we now have a level promenade sweeping the entire length of Swansea Bay, complete with cafes, ice-cream parlours, an open air lido,leisure centre and waterfront museum.

Mumbles Nature Reserve In 1991 Mumbles Hill was designated a Local Nature reserve to protect its value for wildlife and for more people to enjoy the area. It is in the old part of the village, with the original fisherman's cottages on the lower slopes. Although not large in area, the reserve has a variety of natural habitats including maritime, heath, limestone, grassland, scrub and woodland. There are badgers, rabbits, foxes and squirrels living on the hill. Its migratory birds include, garden warblers, house matins and swallows while many resident bird species such as skylark, green woodpecker and jay are also seen. An owl and a pair of pheasants moved into our woodland last year.
