Penarth Women's TrailRay-Howard-Jones
Launched on International Women's Day 2014, the trail leads you around 15 places of interest linked to the women who achieved great things while they were alive.
Amongst the Fifteen is Emily Ada Pickford, whose name appears on the Penarth War Memorial in Alexandra Park. Emily was a singer and musician and toured the Western front entertaining the troops. After performing at a concert in Gouy, France, she died tragically as the car she was in slid on ice, falling into the River Somme.
Another is Ray Howard-Jones (pictured right), a female WW2 war artist. She is best known for her paintings of the Penarth Coastline and recording the preparations for the Normandy D-Day landings in the Vale of Glamorgan.
