Main Street, Fishguard

Great Western Hotel
A View of lower Main Street, Fishguard 1920s?
Brenda Phillips.

Main Street leads away from Fishguard square, and down to the top of Lower Town Hill.

Coaches ran from the Great Western Hotel, on the LHS, to Haverfordwest before the railway line came to Fishguard.  Mr D Rees’s bakery shop sign is below the hotel and on the RHS can be seen Mr Cornock’s hairdressers shop. He later moved his shop up to Fishguard Square to the Market Hall premises.

In the bottom photograph can be seen the lower half of the street which leads down to Lower Fishguard. On the LHS side the premises are named  Sally Port, Manor House (today’s Manor House Hotel), Elim Lodge, Allt Wen, Gwynfryn and Ty Rhos. On the RHS, there is a shop sign reading Eastman’s Outfitters with some potential customers looking through the window! On this side the road leads on to Tower Hill, passing  Vincent House and the Kensington Street turning.
