Thursday 6th February 2:30pm at Crundale Hall. “Historical Tour Through Pembrokeshire” – in the footsteps of Richard Fenton, by Dr Robert Davies.

Rob spoke to us last winter about the Landshipping mining disaster. This talk will look briefly at the life of Richard Fenton KC FAS, the historian, archaeologist, poet and scholar who wrote the book ‘Historical Tour Through Pembrokeshire’ in 1811. The illustrated talk looks at many of his stopping points on his journey throughout the county. We look at the Gwaun Valley where he spent much of his life and the many coastal viewpoints he visited. The talk will follow his route from Fishguard meandering his way to St David’s and on to Haverfordwest via Dale and Milford. He frequently stayed at the homes of the landed gentry, many of these places will be discussed together with their owners.
