Situated in the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park on the western shore of Carmarthen Bay, Tenby and Saundersfoot share a singular beauty. They are both surrounded by striking scenery that casts a spell over visitors and entices them back year after year. Through a fascinating collection of photographs we explore how the summer holiday in this 'Little England Beyond Wales' has changed and evolved over the last century. Mark Davis touches on the rich industrial past that linked Saundersfoot to the production of both iron and the finest quality anthracite coal, the only coal that Queen Victoria allowed to power the Royal Yacht. The popular resort of Tenby is also explored, which inspired the artist Charles Norris to produce beautiful etchings capturing scenes of the walled town prior to its growth through time into the attractive summer resort that we enjoy today.
Mark is a keen social historian and has photographed Bradford from the core out for several years, recording the changing history of this great northern city. He is the owner of the Meanwood Park archive. Mark lives in Haworth, Bradford the home of the Bronte sisters.
