Wick Town Information

An ancient village near Llantwit Major, picturesque Wick has a chequered history. It was frequently attacked by Vikings but later gave birth to the 'Wreckers of Wick', a group of looters who lit beacons on the cliff tops to confuse ships and lure them to their doom. Monks from Monknash would gather the bodies of murdered sailors and lay them out at the Plough & Harrow pub. The wheelwright and carpenter's shop, where the coffins were made, is next door to the pub.
