Revealing the Western Breakwater

Old Harbour Pembrey is one of the oldest manmade harbours on the South Wales coastline. It was built in 1819 to handle the increasing traffic in coal from local mines and was finally abandoned in 1878 following the completion of Burry Port harbour less than half a mile away.

The Old Harbour is now listed as an Ancient Monument of National Importance by CADW and the restoration work carried out during the Millennium Coastal Park project has firmly secured the harbour’s western breakwater. The views overlooking the Burry estuary towards the Gower peninsula and across The Saltings nature reserve are breathtaking. I often make a point of stopping at this site during one of my bike runs along the coastal path and I’m so pleased to have finally painted this unique scene on canvas.
