Fishguard main data and map

Fishguard (Welsh: Abergwaun) is a coastal town in Pembrokeshire, Wales. From Fishguard harbour (confusingly in Goodwick) a regular ferry leaves for Ireland. Fishguard is the terminus of the A40 London to Fishguard trunk road. Fishguard's ancient Royal Oak pub saw the surrender signed following the last attempt to invade mainland Britain in 1797, when a French-inspired force of 1400 troops in four warships landed on 22 February at Carregwastad Head hoping to trigger an uprising. The invasion, executed by units very far from the top drawer of the French forces, did not go at all well and was concluded with little harm done on either side - a few fatalities and some looting. The local heroine of the invasion was Jemima Nicholas, who with her pitchfork single-handedly rounded up 12 invaders. The whole story is told by the Fishguard Tapestry, which was created for the 200th anniversary as a deliberate echo of the Bayeux Tapestry,and is on display in a hall near the town centre.
