tenby

By Mikelane
hi guys ,got away to tenby the weekend ,this really is one of my all time favourite places to be,The Earliest reference to a settlement at tenby is in Etmic-Dinbych,a poem probably of ninth century date,preserved in the fourteenth century book of taliesin,at this point the settlements was likely a hill fort.The mercantile nature of the settlement possibly developed under hiberno-Nors influence,the town grew as a sea port around the now ruined tenby castle,the town walls were built by william de valence,1st earl of pembroke in the 13th century in late medieval times,tenbys importance grew as a sheltered seaport,and in 15/66 portugeues seamen landed the first oranges to be brought to wales at tenby harbour.
In the georgian and victorian eras,tenby was renowned as a health resort and centre for botanica and geological study with many of the towns features being constructed to provide areas for health seaside walks,due to the walkways being built to accommodate vitorian nannies pushing prams,many of the beaches still retain good disabled acces,this is just one of a few i will be uploading fo my stay ,thanks for looking ,and thanks for the C/Cs on my last upload ,regards
Mike ,all this info can be found on the net ,but just to save you the trouble,LARGE IS WORTH A LOOK IF YOU HAVE TIME

Great shot I love the soft colours and the clarity from front to back, not quite how I remember Tenby used to take my babies there for holls, they are 40, and 42 now so a long time ago but lots of happy memories!

I think you've already done your bit for Tenby Tourist Office! It looks to be a wonderful spot and your write-up was very interesting. A very attractive image indeed.

A beautiful landscape - this brings back memories both happy and sad - we spent many happy holidays here when our children were young but tragically this is where one of my cloest friends in the office was seriously injured in a freak accident when a car reversed over the edge of a cliff hitting her as she enjoyed the beach below with her husband and small son - Elizabeth
