Photographer's Note

Tenby (Welsh: Dinbych-y-Pysgod, English: little town of the fishes or little fortress of the fish) is a walled seaside town in Pembrokeshire, south-west Wales, lying on Carmarthen Bay.

Notable features of Tenby include 4 kilometres (2.5 mi) of sandy beaches; the 13th century medieval town walls, including the Five Arches barbican gate; 15th-century St. Mary's Church; the Tudor Merchant's House (National Trust); a museum with art gallery; and the Pembrokeshire Coast Path, part of Britain's only coastal National Park. Boats sail from Tenby's harbour to the monastic Caldey Island, while St Catherine's Island is linked to the town at low tide. The town is served by Tenby railway station.

Tenby is an exceptionally busy UK holiday resort in the summer. The relatively unspoilt beaches and historic town walls make it a unique seaside resort. Most shops, pubs and restaurants in Tenby are specifically marketed to tourists.
