Manorbier

Manorbier is a more homogeneous landscape than many on the Register of Landscapes of Special Historic Interest in Wales. Nevertheless it is possible to define ten historic landscape character areas. The main character area is a system of strip fields with dispersed farms. The strips of this system are unusual in that they run for several hundred metres and are divided by banks with hedges, dry-stone walls and mortared walls. Other areas include the village of Manorbier, the village of Jameston, and landscapes of large regular fields and dispersed farms with farmsteads or old houses of late medieval date.
