Cliff top, Solva, Pembrokeshire
Cliff top, Solva, Pembrokeshire
Solva stands in a deep valley gouged out by water melting from glaciers and its position made it ideal as a base for trading ships in the 18th century.

When the tide is in, the valley fills slowly with water but when the tide goes out, the boats are left high and dry - ideal in the past for unloading cargoes. Today, apart from a few local fishermen, the harbour is used only by pleasure craft.

Here we are looking down towards the inlet, the actual harbour is hidden by the hill on the left.
