Lawrenny

The quiet village of Lawrenny is beside the Cleddau River and comprises a few houses, a shop and a pub. The village is dominated by the 12th century church of St Caradoc. The wide mud flats are ideal for birdwatching - redshanks, kingfishers and heron can often be seen here.

The nearby Lawrenny Quay was once a hive of industry as boats carried coal from this area in the 19th century. Nowadays, Lawrenny is well known for its yacht station where, in addition to the yachting, there is a riverside cafe and accommodation in chalets and caravans.

These pictures were taken on a chilly March day so you can imagine how much prettier the Lawrenny area is in the Summer.
