Ilkeston Cam On Holiday 2002 - South West Wales
Part 08 -Haverfordwest
The photos on this page were taken on Monday 15th July
If the county town of Derbyshire is Derby and that of Nottinghamshire
is Nottingham, you would expect that Pembrokeshire's to be Pembroke.
And that is where you would be wrong - as I was - for that aforementioned
honour lies with Haverfordwest.
Our return journey from Lower Fishguard (see parts Six and Seven)
gave us time for a fleeting visit and to take a few photos down
by the River Cleddau. This red and black footbridge crosses the
river and gives access to a newly-developed shopping complex.
From the footbridge it is possible to see two much older road
bridges that cross the river in the town. This is one of them
framed between the shopping complex on the right and the market
hall and outdoor restaurant that can be seen overhanging the
river on the left.
In the opposite direction, the other bridge carries traffic into
the heart of Haverfordwest between a new development on the left
and the much older buildings alongside the Cleddau on the right.
From down on the river bank and behind one of those older building,
"Minnies", the impressive ruins from a much, much earlier
period can be seen. These belong to the town's 12th century Norman
Before continuing our journey there was just time to walk by
the river for a closer look at this blue building at the foot
of High Street.
