Fishguard and Goodwick are small hill top and harbour twin town in North Pembrokeshire. Both steeped in history going back to the Old Norse fishing traps on the Goodwick sands where the name Fishguard originates. The Welsh name for Fishguard, Abergwaun comes from the mouth of the river Gwuan, which runs through the Gwaun Valley.
Important historical events from the towns include the Battle of Fishguard or the 'Last Invasion' of mainland Britain. The French side was overcome by mutiny and hostility from the famous Welsh women organised by Jemima Nicholas. The brief two day campaign end in February 1797 at the Royal Oak pub when they surrendered.
The area is also know for smuggling synonymous with seaside towns and surrounding sea caves. Another infamous association is the filming location for Dylan Thomas', Under Milk Wood at Lower Town.
