Stepaside is a small hamlet in Pembrokeshire 6 miles north of Tenby, and belongs to the community of Amroth. Many years ago it was a hive of industrial activity after the Pembrokeshire Iron and Coal Company built the Kilgetty Ironworks here in 1848 but ceased operating in 1888. It is believed that Stepaside got its name from when Oliver Cromwell and his army passed through the village and asked people to step aside so that he could continue his journey to Pembroke. The Old Tramway is a level gravel pathway that runs from Stepaside starting at the Heritage Park to Wisemans Bridge, a popular shortcut to the beach and Wisemans Bridge Inn suitable for bicycles, pushchairs, and wheelchairs. The village of Kilgetty is only a short drive away and has a number of shops and a large supermarket. Stepaside is convenient for visiting many of the coastal villages and enjoying the many restaurants, cafes, and pubs in the area.
