Artist's Description

Low Tide at Solva

Number of views as of 13th January 2017 = 1900.

Solva (or Solfach in Welsh) is a small, picturesque, coastal village in Pembrokeshire, South Wales.

Solva’s small, sheltered harbour has many moored boats, though most are left high and dry when the tide recedes. It was once a centre for lime burning and the ruins of several kilns remain near the harbour. Quicklime (calcium oxide), the product of this process, is used in the production of cement and would have been shipped out of Solva by boat.

Solva has a history of smuggling too, with contraband such as salt and tallow (used in candles) landed ashore.

Now a popular spot with tourists, Solva is a great place to explore the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path and National Park.

Date: 6th June 2012.
