Haverfordwest Public Transport Interchange
Western Quayside Enhancement
Exciting Transformational Development in Heart of Haverfordwest
PCC and key partners are developing this ambitious regeneration project to help drive footfall to the town, aiming to support business growth and the wider regeneration of the County town centre. This is an integral part of the Authority’s vision to revitalise the Haverfordwest town centre.
The former Ocky White department store has in part been demolished with the remaining structure being refurbished and extended to create ‘Western Quayside’ a modern and stylish accessible to all three- storey development . It feature a multi-user food emporium along with a restaurant, bar and roof-top terrace.
Pembrokeshire County Council, the Welsh Government Transforming Towns programme and the Building for the Future programme through the European Regional Development Fund, are funding the scheme.
Significant Archeological Discovery
During the construction works, significant archaeological findings were unearthed which required an extensive archaeological excavation of the site, this is currently being undertaken by Dyfed Archaeological Trust (DAT) who have already uncovered many interesting and important discoveries, including historic artefacts and human burials dating back to the 14th Century AD. This work is a great opportunity for the dig team and the public to find out more about an area in the town that has significant historical value.
A former 19th to 20th century iron foundry once occupied the site but below that emerging evidence of a cemetery is coming to light, a cemetery believed to be associated with the medieval friary of St. Saviour’s, whose exact location has never been ascertained.
