Story of Penarth

£9.95 £4.95

The tiny village of Penarth was transformed into a large town by the building of the dock in 1860s, and wealthy ship-owners settled in large mansions overlooking the sea. The Plymouth Estate, which owned most of the land, used its influence to create an air of gentility and refinements, from the public parks and pleasure gardens to the esplanade and pier.

Penarth became a model of late Victorian social order and was known as “The Garden by the Sea”.

The film includes fascinating B&W footage from the 1930s.
