100th Anniversary of the Sinking of Titanic
As the world marks the 100th anniversary of the Titanic tragedy, many people will be unaware of the dramatic events that unfolded in the Caerphilly county borough as the ‘unsinkable’ ship was sinking thousands of miles away across the Atlantic.

On April 14th 1912 the RMS Titanic hit an iceberg and Artie Moore of Pontllainfraith picked up a distress signal on his homemade wireless radio over 3,000 miles away at Gelligroes Mill. Although he alerted local Police, no one believed him until the tragic news was published two days later.

The County Borough museum, the Winding House in New Tredegar opens its fascinating new exhibition on Friday 6th April.
