This is an amazing work of art, very well displayed and absolutely wonderful.
We were staying in Gwbert and fishguard is short drive, the tapestry is in town square, guildhall.
Fishguard itself is lovely to wander round , very clean and pretty.

We made our visit immediately post-Covid, half expecting an enthusiastic reception as new-comers. Alas no, it was closed, the same as everything else, with few exceptions.

We had no idea this tapestry existed or the story behind it .The tapestry was much longer than expected. Beautiful work which is worth a visit.

Very interesting collection of found items & stories about the last invasion of Britain. This event is not well known but the story is fascinating. Well done to the local community for presenting such a fine attraction

Brilliant exhibition and well worth visiting and telling others to visit as well. Superb embroidery done by a large number of people from the local community to celebrate two hundred years since the Last Invasion of the French against the Welsh in 1797. Has an accompanying film which shows how the Tapestry was made.

Art, craft, history and Community
Nov 2019
This wonderful community generated art/hsitory/embroidery/craft panel is a triumph hidden in the library gallery in unassuming Fishguard. It tells the history of the last mainland invasion in 1797 - commenerated in 1997 by a talented designer and 72 local ladies. It is full of colour, humour and small sub stories. Fasinating process is described in an audio vsual loop and the stiches to achieve a wonderful story in cartoons. Of interest to historians, needlecrafters and locals. Free to enter with donations welcomed shares city hall with the local market selling meat, cheeses, baked goods and crafts.

A well told historic event.
Oct 2019
The tapestry is a work of art & love. Made by local people to tell the story of an historic event, hardly known of. It is beautifully constructed & the story of its making is told with supporting exhibits.
Well worth a look if you are in the area.

Interesting piece of history
Sep 2019
The tapestry shares an important and little known piece of local history. As well, the tapestry was an amazing project to undertake. Good to combine a visit to the tapestry with a visit to the Fishguard market on Thursday which has wonderful cheeses and home cooked treats.

A work of art and local history
Sep 2019 • Couples
The tapestry is a wonderful piece of work from local sewing people and historians. Well worth a visit. We were allowed to take our well behaved dog in, which was helpful as otherwise one of us would have missed it. There is a 40 minute video documentary in a separate room. Worth a visit
