Thursday 25th August Manorbier Castle and Lamphey Palace

The weather forecast suggested heavy showers, so exploration by car was the order of the day. We set off to Manorbier and spent a very pleasant
couple of hours on the beach and in the castle.




Just as we left the heavens opened, but we made it to the car before we were really soaked through. The people walking up from the beach were less fortunate, and looked thoroughly miserable.
On to the bishop’s palace at Lamphey. A stunning location, and a very impressive ruin, which successfully revealed how affluent the church was when the palace was built between the 13th and 16th centuries. The congregation may have been extremely poor, but the senior clergy led a very privileged existence. 





Finally popped down to St. Govans’s Head to check out the newly completed cycle path.
