Thorn Island is in the Community of Angle off the south west coast of Wales. The island is dominated by a fort that was built to defend Milford Haven from the French Navy. The Angle lifeboat received silver medals in 1878 rescuing the crew of the Loch Shiel on rocks near the island which carried cases of whisky.
