Walwyns Castle, Pembrokeshire
Walwyns Castle, a straggling parish in Pembrokeshire, near St Bride's Bay, and 7 miles SW of Haverfordwest. Post town, Haverfordwest. Acreage, 3297; population of the civil parish, 359; of the ecclesiastical, 500. There is a parish council consisting of seven members. The living is a rectory, united with that of West Robeston, in the diocese of St David's; gross value, £269 with residence, in the gift of the Lord Chancellor. The church was rebuilt in 1869, but retained the base of the tower of the previous edifice. Near the church is a very interesting ruin, in capital preservation, said to be Walwyn's Castle. Walwyn, it is understood, is the same as Gawaine, a nephew of King Arthur, and one of the Knights of the Round Table. He is supposed to have been buried in the churchyard. In the parish there is another very well preserved ruin, called Romas Castle.
