Historical Description

Cleddau, East and West, two rivers of Pembrokeshire. The East Cleddau rises at Blaen-y-gors, under the Pre-celly Mountain, and runs 15 miles south-south-westward, partly on the boundary with Carmarthen, and past Egremont, Llawhaden, and Slebeck to a confluence with the West Cleddau, 4¼ miles SE of Haverfordwest. The West Cleddau rises at Llygad-Cleddau in Llanfair-Nantygof, and runs about 20 miles south-south-eastward, past Wolfs Castle, Treffgarne, and Haverfordwest, to a confluence with the East Cleddau. The united stream runs into Milford-Haven.
