Fishguard and Goodwick History / Hanes Abergwaun ac Wdig

Fishguard

We are a group of four friends who since 2008 have gathered, digitally, photos, stories and memories from and of our local community.

Over the years we have shared them via exhibitions in our local library and talks to schools and other interested groups. In 2021 we achieved our long term ambition to establish a website to enable us to share (and grow!) our collection. It has been received extremely well by the community, both locally and further afield and we now have over 6000 images and 1800 posts.

The site was originally intended to serve only Fishguard and Goodwick here in West Wales but we have been asked to include material from many of the local coastal villages from St Davids through to Newport, Pembrokeshire.

The website is set up to enable individuals to make their own contribution as well as comment on existing posts and this has proved very popular with regular uploads from a wide variety of ages.

Within a couple months of launch we were asked to participate in the UKWebarchive project which we were delighted to do – it is great to know that whatever happens in the future to our website all the material we have gathered is backed up by a central archive and will continue to be available for many years to come.
