Newport [3] (Welsh: Trefdraeth or Tudraeth) in Pembrokeshire is a town in Wales.

Understand[edit]

A small town nestling beneath Carningli Mountain on the North Coast of Pembrokeshire. The Welsh name Trefdraeth or Tudraeth as it is sometimes called is old Welsh for Newport. Its literal translation in to English is Town on the Beach.

There is evidence to show that Trefdraeth is an ancient Town with Standing Stones, Cromlechs and Bronze/Iron age forts in abundance in the surrounding area.

There is a Norman Castle standing tall over the Town and recent archaeological digs have unearthed substantial medieval development near the South bank of the river Nevern.
