The south west corner of Pembrokeshire is often called ‘Little England beyond Wales’.
This part of Wales has been culturally, and above all, linguistically distinct from
the rest of Wales for many centuries. The English language, for instance, was established
much sooner here than elsewhere in Wales and was already the dominant language when
George Owen of Henllys wrote his ‘Description of Pembrokeshire’ in 1603.
The local accent has a very musical sound and although obviously Welsh it is in many
ways reminiscent of English West Country accents.
