Shipwrecks of the Great Storm of 1859

This collection explores some of the many vessels which were driven ashore or wrecked during the hurricane of 25-26 October 1859. Whilst the most famous is the ROYAL CHARTER, the stories associated with many of the others are just as fascinating and poignant. They provide a unique window on the Victorian period in Wales - a moment in time through which to explore our trading links with the wider world, forgotten maritime industries, as well as the society of the day.
