View of the Episcopal Palace at St David’s in Pembrokeshire, south east Wales. The earliest parts of the Bishop’s Palace, such as the fortified wall and gates, date from the 12th century however the most extensive work was completed in the 14th century by Bishop Henry de Gower. This work included the Great Hall, Bishop’s Hall and East wing. At this time the palace would have been a magnificent site- the walls were topped with colourful arched parapets and the walls were plastered and coloured white. It was the largest Palace in Wales and was set in 16 acres of land.
