Pendine, Carmarthenshire
Pendine sits in the county of Carmarthenshire, South West Wales. It is situated 9 km from St Clears. and it lies between the coastal villages of Saundersfoot and Laugharne.
The village consists of two parts, the old hill-top settlement around the parish church of St Margaret, and the small harbour settlement on the shore. The seaside resort is best known for Pendine Sands, where Malcolm Campbell and Parry-Thomas set the world land speed record five times in the 1920's. Parry-Thomas was killed while making a final record-breaking attempt on Pendine Sands in 1927.
Saundersfoot Pleasure Boats
The tragedy was so shocking that his car, Babs, was abandoned and left to rot on the sands. After many years it was dug up and restored and today has pride of place in the the Pendine Museum of Speed.
There are two beaches at Pendine. The first, Pendine Sands, is a long stretch of sand popular with kite buggy enthusiasts. Please note that this beach is sometimes closed to the public as it is used by the MOD. The second beach, Morfa Bychan, is popular with families, with its opportunities for walking and swimming.
As with many Welsh communities the church holds an important place in Pendine. The Church is dedicated to St Margaret - St Margaret of Scotland or, according to local tradition St Margaret Marloes. The church is noted for its slate covered saddleback tower, a churchyard cross and a gravestone from 1623 set in the south wall near the porch. There are intereting flourishes and floral designs on the gravestones carved by the local monumental mason Tom Morris, and a cast-iron headstone from the foundry in Saundersfoot.
