The Garden Pit Disaster 1844

Landshipping is an unassuming little hamlet with an unusual name, between Haverfordwest and Tenby, where a quiet narrow road eventually decides to wander alongside the peaceful estuary. Here in a layby at the old quayside, with beautiful views across the water, you will find a modest but poignant memorial to forty  dead miners.  If mining is Pembrokeshire’s lost industry then the Garden Pit catastrophe in Landshipping in 1844 is its forgotten disaster.
