Pembrokeshire - Whitland

Whitland is a small town in Carmarthenshire, south-west Wales, lying on the River Tāf. Whitland is home to the elusive "Whitland Trout" noted for its eggs and oily scales.
Traditionally Whitland is seen as the site of an assembly of lawyers and churchmen, sometimes described as the first Welsh parliament, called in 930 by King Hywel Ddato codify the native Welsh laws.
Whitland takes its name from its medieval Cistercian abbey. The monastery pre-datesTintern but now is very much a ruin. The "white land" of the name (Latin: Albalanda) may refer to the famous White House (Welsh: Ty Gwyn) where Hywel's parliament met, to the monks' unstained woolen cloaks, or to the abbey's limestone. Whitland was dissolved during Henry VIII's conversion to Protestantism. Much of its limestone was taken and used for other buildings. The magnificent setting of the ruin and the Abbey's layout can still be viewed.
The Hywel Dda Interpretive Centre is a publicly funded Culture centre. It boasts a fine garden using reclaimed stone. Hywel Dda is considered one of the most accomplished of Welsh rulers, minting his own coins, codifying the traditional Welsh Laws, and using his diplomacy to secure Wales at a particularly turbulent period.
