The Buildings of Wales - Pembrokeshire (Pevsner) (2nd Hand Hardback)
This authoritative guide to the southwest corner of Wales encompasses a wide sweep of history, from the rugged prehistoric remains that stud the windswept landscape overlooking the Atlantic to distinguished 20th Century 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.

"A fascinating read - very much in classic Pevsner style but none the worse for that and full of fascinating detail."
"This great reference book gives brief descriptions on all types of architecture of interest throughout the county. If you search on Google UK 'Welsh Ruins' you will find photographs of ruined mansions in Wales." - Amazon Reviews.
