Photographing Pembrokeshire leads readers through Pembrokeshire locations frequented by pirates, smugglers, wreckers and others who have exploited the coastline from earliest times to the present day. Ieuan Morris’ striking images and fascinating accompanying text in both Welsh and English throw new light on one of Britain’s most stunning regions. People have been relocating to Pembrokeshire since the 12th century, not just from other parts of the UK but from all over the globe. Morris discusses notorious historic events and looks at the linguistic and cultural differences that exist across the north-south demarcation known as the ‘Landsker Line’. As well as showcasing the county’s natural beauty, Morris considers the impact of migration, tourism and industrial pollution. Can Pembrokeshire and its indigenous population survive as we know them today? This book documents this glorious county as it is now and raises questions about its future. Full-color, illustrated throughout.
