Brean Down

Barrow / Cairn Cemetery


Brean Down was essentially an island up until the medieval period when the surrounding land was drained for agricultural purposes. The thought of having to paddle through foggy swamp to this remote, stormy place is quite something!

In 1896 Marconi made the word’s first radio transmission from Brean Down to Lavernock Point, Penarth.
