The Golden Hornet would thrive even on a Welsh cake binge at the harbour at Solva, followed by a double AA box photo shoot. Just think how the DPF would appreciate a decent ride out! :-D

More4 is currently devoting 1hour and 5 minutes to Tenby's former lifeboat station......yes its on Grand Designs!

looks like its being turned into a holiday home...grade II listed so I presume as of July 2018, it must still be there. Wonder how much they are charging to stay there?
