Lydstep Cavern Beach 3

 
Lydstep Cavern Beach has
many Sea Caves in one area.
A Sea Cave is formed by the
forces of the sea by waves
seething at the rock face
of a Coast line, this sometimes 
produces huge Caverns.
A typical sea cave is formed
along a weakness in the rock,
like faults, different sediments
or weaker layers.
Faults in the rock sometimes produce chains of caves. Lydstep Cavern Beach is also known as “Bay of Caves”.

tenby harbour beach-st julian,s chapel

Tenby Harbour is a working
fishing harbour.
Around the harbour there are
old stone buildings with converted
fishermen,s cottages, together with
St Julian,s Chapel.
St Julian,s Chapel stood dominant
and was a feature at the end of the
old quay in the 19th century.

All fishermen would assemble in the
old St Julian,s Chapel before setting
off for the fishing grounds, prayers
were offered for a good catch and tithes of fish and oysters were paid to the clergyman in return for his services.
The Chapel was destroyed in 1842, but the New St Julian,s Chapel was built by all the fishing community in 1878, it is still referred to as the fisherman,s chapel.
The chapel is open to the public during the summertime and well worth a visit, it is very unique and special inside, there is a donation box if you would like to take home a souvenir. Also beautiful surroundings.
