St Davids

St. Davids, a small town in the W. of Pembrokeshire, 6 miles W.N.W. of Haverfordwest. It is situated near the N. coast of St. Bride's Bay, 1-1/2 miles inland. The cathedral, a cruciform Transitional structure, was begun in 1176. The most noteworthy features are the richly-ornamented nave, which has a fretted timber roof, the beautiful 14th-century stone rood-screen, the carved choir stalls, the tomb of Edmund, Earl of Richmond, father of Henry VII, and the shrine of St. David. The ruins of St. Mary's College (1377) are picturesque, and Bishop Gower's palace (l342) is a remarkably fine example of mediaeval domestic architecture.
