A view over the disused granite quarry on the coastal path between Abereiddy and Porthgain. This area of Pembrokeshire was once a hive of activity with slate and stone being mined for transport to all parts of the country. Today much of the land is owned by National Trust and designated a National Trail, popular with hikers and adventure seekers.
