Pembrokeshire: Abereiddy

Abereiddy (Abereiddi)

Abereiddy is a small hamlet in North Pembrokeshire for far from Porthgain. It's been made famous in the last few years for hosting the Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series.

Slate quarrying began in Abereiddy in the mid-19th century but now all that remains of the quarrying is the ruins of a row of workers cottages and "The Blue Lagoon".

The Blue Lagoon

Quarrying at Abereiddy was abandoned in 1901 and it flooded in th 1930s. It was linked to the sea by a narrow channel and local fishmen decided that the quarry would make an ideal shelter for their boats so expanded the channel. The colour of the water ever the slate gives the lagoon it's name.
