Excerpt: ...point, just touching, or perhaps a little open northward of the Summer house, which will lead outside of Monkey rock on the one hand, and well inside Isaf and Ganol on the other. GOAST.--Abercaste1, is a fishing village situated about 3 miles eastward of Penclegyr point; the small bight affords no shelter, except to fishing craft that can beach. Bola, Bleiddyn, is a rocky patch with 13 feet at low-water springs, situated northward of Abercastel, with Daullyn island bearing S. by W. 1-W., distant half a mile, and Carnfawr, 700 feet in height, in line with Carreg Bwch-du. Carnfawr open northward of Carreg Bwch-du leads northward of Bola Bleiddyn, and the same hill in line with Pen Bwch-du leads inshore of it. Tri-maen rO0kS.----Between Abercastel and Strumble head there are no dangers, except the Tri-maen, a few half-tide rocks lying in the bight between Pen Bwch-du and Penbrush. Depths_--Between St. David's head and Pen Clegyr a depth of 20 fathoms will be found about one mile from the shore, gradually increasing to 30 fathoms at the same distance off Strumble head; and a depth of 20 fathoms will be found close to the headlands. The line of 30 fathoms is from 4 to 5% miles from the coast, and leads nearly in the stream of Bais bank. For Tidal streams, see page 235. STRUMBLE HEAD stands prominently forward, and is one of the most conspicuous headlands in South Wales. It is a barren and rugged mass of trap rock, forming the north-eastern point of Pen Caer, which is the general name of the promontory. The hill of Carnfawr, with a rugged rocky summit, rises to the height of 700 feet: it has steep and remarkable sea faces, and is a valuable object for assisting the seamen to identify this portion of the coast.
