The ghost of the Captain’s Wife haunts the coast at Lavernock, fated to re-enact a tragic event from long ago. At the same site the first ever wireless message across sea was transmitted in Morse Code by Guglielmo Marconi in 1897. Here lie the remains of dinosaurs, shipwrecks and those who lost their lives trying to reach safe haven. Lavernock is a place layered with history and legend and more than a bit of magic.
