Our fascinating new exhibition focuses on the remarkable story of Artie Moore from Gelligroes Mill, near Pontllanfraith who received RMS Titanic's SOS call on his home-made radio receiver on the night of 14th/15th April, 1912. The exhibition also explores the story of Titanic, as well as some local links in this 100th anniversary year of her sinking.
