Angle

4.5
Angle is a village and community on a narrow peninsula on the very south-west tip of Wales in Pembrokeshire. It has two public houses, a school, post office, a castle, St Mary's church and a sandy beach to the west of the village. The nearest railway station is Pembroke, from where there is a bus link. The Angle lifeboat received silver medals in 1878 for rescuing the crew of the Loch Shiel from rocks near Thorn Island. The ship had been carrying a cargo of whisky and beer.VillageA major occupation is tourism as people travel to use the sheltered beach at West Angle Bay, which has been designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest. The rockpools in the bay are home to a small green starfish called Asterina phylactica. The starfish was only formally identified in 1979.A Peel tower was built by Robert de Shirburn in the 14th century. It is within Castle Farm but can be easily accessed. The castle may have been built by the Shirburn family during the time of Owain Glyndŵr. A French army landed at Angle in 1405 to assist Glyndŵr. Some sources see the castle as a simple pele tower but others see evidence of a moat and another tower and regard what survives as being the remains of a larger castle.
