Photographer's Note

Hello Everyone,

I hope you are having a lovely day and looking forward to the weekend. I'm afraid the weather is cold and breezy here in Lancashire but, the weekend is still a great attraction.

Today I am posting a shot of Pembroke. The shot was taken from one of the inner towers of the old castle overlooking the bridge.

Here is some information about Pembroke, taken from Pembroke-on-line:
The ancient town of Pembroke is a popular tourist destination for Pembrokeshire. The history of the town can be traced back to 1093 when the Normans, led by Roger de Montgomery arrived and established a wooden fortress in the town. The present castle was mainly the work of William Marshall and his five sons during 1189 - 1245.

The town itself was fortified and walled, and sections of these walls are still visible from the one-way traffic system gracing Pembroke today.
The castle was the home of the earls of Pembroke and was the birthplace of King Henry VII in 1457.

The streets of the town still follow their medieval line, and although the houses have been rebuilt in stone during the towns more prosperous periods in the 18th and 19th centuries, visitors can still get a feeling of the old medieval town.

Thank you for your visit.
I hope you enjoyed the photograph and please feel free to offer feedback on any aspect of it. :-)
