About Haverfordwest

Haverfordwest

 

 is the county town of Pembrokeshire,Wales, and serves as the County's principal commercial and administrative centre. Haverfordwest is the most populous urban area in Pembrokeshire, with a population of 13,367 in 2001; though its community boundaries make it the second most populous settlement in the county, with 10,812 people.

Haverfordwest is 6 miles away from the village of Broad Haven, part of the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, Britain's only coastal national park, which attracts thousands of tourists each year..Haverfordwest is twinned with the German town of Oberkirch.

History

 

Quay Street

 

The name of the town means "ford used by fat cows" from Old English hæfar=heifer, fat cows. In local dialect, it is pronounced "harford". The Welsh language name is said by B.G. Charles to be "merely a corruption of the English name", and as such has no meaning in Welsh. Another claim is that Tudor period monarchs called it "Hereford or Hertford in the West", to distinguish it from either the English Hereford in Herefordshire or Hertford in Hertfordshire. The veracity of these competing explanations of the name origin continue to be a matter of debate amongst scholars and linguistic experts.

Origins

 

It seems likely that such an obvious strategic location would have been settled in some way from an early date. Some have asserted that there is no documentary or archaeological evidence of a settlement on the site before the 12th century, when the first Norman architecture castle was established. However archaeological discoveries in Pembrokeshire suggest otherwise. Edward Llwyd's note to Camden's "Britannia" (ed. 1695) refers to a valuable find of silver coins at Llanboidy, the latest coin being one of Domitian struck in AD 91. In the 1920s Sir Mortimer Wheeler partially excavated a Roman dwelling or villa at Wolfscastle (work restarted in 2002 by Professor Merroney).

 

 

Economy

 

In accordance with its status as a sub regional hub-town, Haverfordwest continues to serve as Pembrokeshire's principal commercial and retail centre. Recent years have seen the development of the river-side shopping centre. More recently still there has been significant retail development in the suburb of Withybush on the outskirts of the town with the opening of a Marks and Spencer store in 2010 and Debenham's in 2013..

Concerns about the relative decline of the historic town centre compared to the growth of the out-of-town centre retail centres at Withybush has led to Welsh historian John Davies expressing his concern that Haverfordwest was becoming "a medieval town surrounded by tin sheds".

The "New" Bridge at Haverfordwest

 

Haverfordwest serves as the market town for most of the county of Pembrokeshire. It forms an important road network hub between other towns in Pembrokeshire such as Milford HavenPembroke DockFishguard and St David's, as a result of its position at the tidal limit of the western Cleddau river. The majority of the town, comprising the old parishes of St. Mary, St. Martin and St. Thomas, lies on the right (west) bank of the river. On the left bank are the suburbs of Prendergast and Cartlett
