This authoritative guide to the southwest corner of Wales by three local experts encompasses a wide sweep of history, from the rugged prehistoric remains that stud the distinctive windswept landscape overlooking the Atlantic to distinguished recent buildings that respond imaginatively to their natural setting. The comprehensive gazetteer encompasses the great cathedral of St David's and its Bishop's Palace, the numerous churches, and the magnificent Norman castles that reflect the turbulent medieval past. It gives attention also to the lesser-known delights of Welsh chapels--both simple rural and sophisticated Victorian examples--in all their wayward variety and provides detailed accounts of a rewarding range of towns, including the county town, Haverfordwest, the attractively unspoilt Regency resort of Tenby, and Milford Haven and Pembroke Dock, with their important naval history. An introduction with valuable specialist contributions sets the buildings in context.

Pembrokeshire contains some of the finest coastal scenery in Britain. There are great contrasts, from sandy beaches to tall cliffs, and from offshore islands to estuarine creeks. Parts have remained little changed and would probably be recognisable to our Neolithic ancestors but around Milford Haven and some of the coastal villages many changes have occurred.
