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 castle.

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.
