Pembrokeshire (pronounced /ˈpɛmbrʊkʃɪər/, /ˈpɛmbrʊkʃər/, or /ˈpɛmbroʊkʃɪər/; Welsh: Sir Benfro) is a county in the southwest of Wales. Pembrokeshire was founded upon Dyfed until its conquest by the Normans in the late 11th century.

Geography

Pembrokeshire is a maritime county, bordered by the sea on three sides, by Ceredigion to the north east and by Carmarthenshire to the east. Its economy relies heavily on tourism, but agriculture is still important, and petrochemical and liquid natural gas industries have been developed on the banks of the Cleddau Estuary.[citation needed]

Its population was 114,131 at the United Kingdom Census 2001.

The administrative headquarters and historic county town is Haverfordwest and other settlements include Pembroke itself, Pembroke Dock, Milford Haven, Fishguard, Tenby, Saundersfoot, Narberth, Neyland and Newport. St David's, in the North west of the county, is the United Kingdom's smallest city.
