The Angel Shark Project: Wales needs your help!

Angelsharks were once common, gliding over the seabeds of the East Atlantic and Mediterranean. This amazing species has disappeared from much of its range, and is now Critically Endangered. An important population remains in Wales, and they need your help to safeguard it.

Share your Angelshark stories, memories or photos.

Volunteer with their History of Angels research project, to unearth clues in local libraries, archives and museums.

Join the Angelshark History Roadshow as it travels around Wales from January-March 2019.

Over 7,500 extant engineering drawings created for both marketing and manufacturing the engines reveal the technological development of industrial machinery through the nineteenth century and indicate how important the contribution of Wales was to the British Industrial Revolution.
