Digital copy of black and white photograph showing Fagwyr Uchaf, Anglesey in c. 1946. Donated to the archive by William Baquiast whose grandparent’s home it was. He writes: ‘the tower was eventually pulled down because it was leaning dangerously on the house. According to family gossip, this was due to the fact that it's lower section only had three walls and was built with sand taken from the beach. So full of sea salt and no good for building work’. (Ref: DD2022_026). See more in our site record here: https://coflein.gov.uk/en/site/15687

Digital colour photograph showing Llys-y-fran inscribed stone, taken in 2022. This pillar stone, a Scheduled Ancient Monument, bears a roughly pick-out linear Latin cross, with ring & dot embellishments. The stone served as a gatepost at Velindre Farm but has since been moved.

Combined Digital Elevation Model (DEM) and OrthoPhoto resulting from photogrammetric survey on the surviving extant ironwork from the wreck of the Siloam at Nolton Haven. The Siloam was a wooden schooner built in 1868, 93 feet in length with 3 masts. At time of loss, 20 February 1892, it was carrying iron ore from Duddon to Briton Ferry, when it was caught by a force 8 gale and driven ashore at the mouth of Nolton Haven. One crewmember was killed in the wrecking incident (ref: UAV2022_049_013). See more in our site record here: https://coflein.gov.uk/en/site/273000
