Details

The Battle of Fishguard was a military invasion of Great Britain by Revolutionary France during the War of the First Coalition. The brief campaign, on 22–24 February 1797, is the most recent landing on British soil by a hostile foreign force, and thus is often referred to as the "last invasion of mainland Britain".

Mark this event by joining a community procession from Golden Mile, Fishguard to the Gorsedd Circle in time to hear the midday cannon fire from Fishguard Fort. Assemble outside Mannings (SA65 9AE) at 11:20; procession starts at 11:35.
