A newspaper article from The Cambrian, published on 09/11/1833, describing the stranding of a whale at Newgale Sands.

The clipping reads as follows: "A Whale. – On the afternoon of the 5th instant, a Whale was thrown on shore on Newgale Sands, in the county of Pembroke, supposed to have been dead for some time. It was soon dismembered of its head and tail, and the following day a number of persons were collected around it, cutting away and carrying off in carts its blubber. This monster of the deep cut up quite white, with a very strong and rather unpleasant fishy smell, and was about 30 feet in length."
