Pendine, Carmarthenshire

Pendine is a village in Carmarthenshire, Wales, United Kingdom lying on Carmarthen Bay. The village consists of two parts: the old hill-top settlement around the parish church, and the small harbour settlement on the shore. The latter developed into a small seaside resort during the 20th century. The seaside resort is best known for Pendine Sands, where Malcolm Campbell and J.G. Parry-Thomas set the world land speed record five times between 1924 and 1927. Parry-Thomas was killed while making a final record-breaking attempt on Pendine Sands in 1927.
