The wide steps that used to lead down to the South Beach’s Shanley’s Pavilion, a Victorian six floor entertainment complex, built in 1929, demolished some fifty years later. It included a cinema, ballroom, skating rink, conference and function rooms and an amusement arcade, all capable of being used at the same time.
An introduction to not one, two, three, but four Tenby Lifeboat Stations, from the oldest, built in 1852, to the youngest built some seven years ago.
