Pembrokeshire, or Sir Benfro in Welsh, is located in south Wales. It is bordered by the sea on three sides: St. Bride’s Bay and Cardigan Bay of St. George’s Channel on the west and northwest and Bristol Channel on the south. Pembrokeshire is mostly rural but has a strong industrial sector centred on Milford Haven. The deep-sea port of Milford Haven is one of Europe’s leading oil ports.
The southern part of Pembrokeshire is known as ‘Little England beyond Wales’. After the Norman Conquest in the 12th century, the region held strong ties to England, and with an influx of Flemish settlers, English became the dominant language. Today, the Landsker line is still present as a cultural and linguistic boundary between north and south Pembrokeshire.
