Lamphey, Pembrokeshire
Lamphey is situated near Pembroke in south west Wales, the village where Henry VII was born. Although Lamphey could rely on Pembroke's history in order to attract visitors, it has its own interesting past. In olden times one of the palaces of the Bishops of St David's stood in the village. It was complete with everything that was needed to live here: vegetable gardens, parklands, fruit orchards and fishponds, so it was no wonder that by the 14th century it had become one of the Bishops' favourite palaces. However, Bishop Barlow wanted it removed to Carmarthen and he was seen as responsible for the palace's decay. He neglected the palace and is believed to have even dismantled parts of it to gain profit. The ruins survive today as a fascinating insight into the history of this part of Pembrokeshire. The village church, dedicated to St Tyfai, is dominated by a large tower to the front of the building. The interior includes a beautifully detailed glass window, a domed roof and a decorated altar.
