Cable hut, Abermawr
This tiny building, now a holiday let, played a significant role in history as the place where the first underwater cable link between Ireland and Great Britain came ashore in 1862, and a second one in 1880. Equipment here received the messages and operators relayed them to London. During WW1 the terminal was deemed important enough to warrant an armed guard to be stationed here. See LinkExternal link
