Haverfordwest Through Time

Availability: Out of stock

Author: Patricia Swales-Barker

Haverfordwest, the county town of Pembrokeshire, was founded around 900 years ago. The town itself has three medieval parish churches and a priory, now ruined, reflecting the wealth and significance of the town in the Middle Ages. In 1791 it was described by a visitor as a 'Little Bath' and several of its Georgian buildings have survived. Until the arrival of the railway in the mid-nineteenth century the town was a major port. The shops of Haverfordwest were many and varied, and local enterprise mingled with national stores, but over the last thirty years traffic priority and the growth of out-of town shopping have severely impacted on the town centre. The history of the town has been well documented and its development has been recorded in many prints, postcards and photographs. This book provides a unique opportunity to compare those images with the views we see today.
