Pembrokeshire

Pembrokeshire, a maritime county, the farthest W. in Wales; is washed by St. George's Channel except on the E., where it borders on Cardigan and Carmarthen. It is a county of low hills, with much indented coast-line. Milford Haven, in the S., is one of the best harbours in the world. The climate is humid; two-thirds of the soil is under pasture; coal, iron, lead, and slate are found. St. David's is a cathedral city; the county town is Pembroke (18) on Milford Haven, and near it is the fortified dockyard and arsenal Pembroke Dock (10).

Population (circa 1900) given as 89,000.
