Abereiddi 4

Posted by Doug (Burnham-on-Sea, United Kingdom) on 30 July 2015 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

Abereiddi is an old settlement on a headland in Pembroke, South West Wales, it was populated by the people who quarried slate nearby. Quarrying of slate finished there around 100 years ago.
The blue lagoon, here around the headland from the cottages was the quarry. The lagoon was formed after the quarrymen blew a hole in the rocks allowing the sea to enter when they had finished hewing out the slate closing the quarry.
This view is from the top of the quarry looking down to the blue lagoon.

Thanks for your comments I'm really grateful for them and welcome constructive feedback.
I'm sorry if I don't manage to comment over weekends but I tend to spend most of that time with my family and only occasionally on the computer
