Porthgain Harbour, Pembrokeshire

Porthgain is a small coastal hamlet on the north coast of St Davids Peninsula. At one time, the harbour exported slate from quarries a few miles south at Abereiddi, Trwynllwyd and Porthgain itself. In later years the slate trade was abandoned, although Porthgain survived by turning to brickmaking, and later to crushed roadstone. In 1987 Porthgain was designated as a conservation area. The harbour, still home to local fishermen, can get very busy in the summer with recreational boaters and hikers.

Photospherical Installation at Porthgain 6th & 7th March.

For the first of the up and coming site-specific installations I will be heading down to the beautiful coastal village of Porthgain within the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park. The installation is scheduled for Friday the 6th & Saturday the 7th of March and the photosphere is located right on the end of the harbour wall so when the tides is in its surrounded by water from almost all sides. The site is 100% open access and if the weather is nice there is loads to see and do in the vicinity, not least enjoying the coastal walk or the hospitality at the Sloop Inn.

This will be the second installation of the Porthgain Harbour Photosphere sphere at this site and its already one of my favourites, really coming into its own when the sun drops low near the horizon and the small interior light begins to radiate from within the sphere. If you are in the area or looking for an excuse to explore this beautiful location then please head on down.

As always the Installations are dependent on weather conditions so stay tuned to me via twitter @relics360 or via this sites news incase conditions dictate a postponement.

Hopefully see you there.
