The last load of grapes collected at Castell Coch or Swanbridge in Wales (c. 1898)


This image shows the last load of grapes collected at either Castell Coch or most likely, the vineyard of Swanbridge.  After early success at Castell Coch the Marquis of Bute ordered a second, larger vineyard planted at Swanbridge.  This vineyard overlooked the Bristol Channel, south-west of Cardiff in Wales.
