Lavernock (Welsh: Larnog) is a small village in the Vale of Glamorgan in South Wales, lying between Penarth and Sully, and overlooking the Bristol Channel.

On May 13, 1897, Guglielmo Marconi, assisted by George Kemp, a Cardiff Post Office engineer, transmitted the first wireless signals over water from Lavernock Point to Flat Holm island. The message sent in Morse code was 'ARE YOU READY.'

LAVERNOCK, otherwise LARNOCK, a parish, in the union of Cardiff, hundred of DinasPowys, county of Glamorgan, South Wales, 7� miles (S. by W.) from Cardiff; with 85 inhabitants. The living is a rectory not in charge, consolidated with the living of Penarth; the church, dedicated to St. Lawrence, is situated close to the water's edge, the parish lying on the shore of the British Channel. Lead-ore has been obtained here, but the works are now discontinued.
