The Railways of Pembrokeshire details the struggle to bring the railway to West Wales and explores how New Milford was established and developed as the port for Southern Ireland. From the Golden Age of rail travel it beautifully charts the history of the railway through two world wars, the early years of nationalization, the rise of the petroleum business on the banks of Milford Haven, and the subsequent demise of most of the former rail infrastructure.
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.
Guidebook to 40 circular walks in Pembrokeshire in Wales.

Step-by-step route descriptions are accompanied by 1:50,000 mapping. For each route, information is also given regarding parking and public transport options, as well as toilets and refreshments available along the way.

This collection of walks includes something for everyone, from novices to experienced ramblers. None of the walks demand technical skill and, in good weather, pose few navigational problems.
