Oriel y Parc to host A Year in Pembrokeshire book signing and talk

The creative collaboration behind a new book that focuses on the county of Pembrokeshire will be holding two free events at Oriel y Parc Gallery and Visitor Centre in St Davids on Friday 20 July.

Broadcaster Jamie Owen and photographer David Wilson will be signing copies of A Year in Pembrokeshire before discussing the book, which is a 12-month journey through their home county in words and pictures.

The Pembrokeshire Coast National Park landscape features heavily in the publication, which explores the Milford Haven Waterway and Cleddau Estuary, the Pembrokeshire Coast Path National Trail around Strumble Head, the Preseli Hills, and Christmas in St Davids Cathedral amongst many other adventures.

“To have spent a year in Pembrokeshire, travelling its lanes with someone who is as passionate as me in capturing its spirit has been a joy.”
