Solva - Solfach. (Welsh)

By olmeister6  
Stunning Solva Pembrokeshire.
Emerald water and lush coloured hillsides.
Factoid:
One of the strangest of all Solva’s seafaring stories is that by 1848, soon after the village’s tally of trading ships had reached 30, it was possible to buy a passage from here direct to New York!

Berths were advertised for £3 a head, with a half-price ticket offered for those under 14 years of age and infants free. This was inclusive of water, fuel and sleeping places for a voyage that, in those days, could take up to 17 weeks.
