taken 6 years ago, near to Fishguard/Abergwaun, Pembrokeshire/Sir Benfro, Great Britain

Old custom house, Hill Terrace
Old custom house, Hill Terrace
The house at the end of the terrace, standing on the corner of the steep hill leading down to Lower Fishguard is called Ty Tollau. It was not however one of the toll houses associated with the social and political unrest in the mid C19 (the Rebecca Riots) but it was the custom house in charge of levying taxes on imports into the harbour below.
The Stena line ferry can be seen beyond, leaving Goodwick bound for Rosslare.
