Penarth Pier



Penarth Pier, originally uploaded by John the Neath.

is a headland on the South Wales coast, overlooking the Bristol Channel with views across to the Somerset Coast.
A line drawn between Lavernock Point and Sand Point, Somerset marks the lower limit of the Severn estuary and the start of the Bristol Channel.
Guglielmo Marconi, assisted by George Kemp (who was a Cardiff based Post Office engineer) transmitted and received the first wireless signals over open sea between Lavernock Point and Flat Holm island.
