Saundersfoot Harbour. Wales.

Saundersfoot Harbour. Wales.
A small quaint Seaside Resort
right in the heart of Pembrokeshire.
Saundersfoot Harbour was built in
1829 which transformed the small
fishing village into a thriving Industrial
Port, Exporting high quality Anthracite
by sea.
Also Queen Victoria said that she
would only use the Coal from
Saundersfoot to power the
First Royal Steam Yacht, this
was because it gave intense
heat and yet produced little smoke.

Caldey Monastery.

Caldey Monastery.
The present monks of Caldey
are Cistercians, a stricter
contemplative offshoot
of the Benedictine Order.
A group of monks came from
Scourmont Abbey, Chimay, 
Belgium in 1929 establishing
what is known as a “daughter house”.
In acknowledgement of their
Celtic predecessors, they adopted
St Samson, an early abbot of
Caldey, as their patron saint and rededicated the monastery as the Abbey of Our Lady and St Samson. Their new foundation also received the strong Cistercian tradition which had existed in Wales before the Reformation.
