                 Penarth Dock from the Ely Tidal Harbour ; a pen and ink drawing by Julie Carder. [124] [393]

The History of the Penarth Dock and Ely Tidal Harbour in South Wales. Penarth was a small port in comparison to Cardiff, Newport and Barry but nevertheless highly efficient and profitable for its owners, the Penarth Harbour, Dock and Railway Co., otherwise the Taff Vale Railway Co., who leased it for 999 years. Follow the story from the days when Brunel's son was involved and Charles Darwin invested in the venture, through the last 150 years or so and judge for yourself if these docks deserve to be recognised as an important element of the heritage of South Wales and of a bygone age when Britain was Great and truly was the powerhouse of our World.
