This plan of the north Pembrokeshire coast and St David's Peninsula shows the low, gentle hills that characterise the peninsular landscape. The coast is illustrated with pointed rocks below the cliffs. Aber-Eiddy, indicated near the top margin of the sheet, is the only landing place along this stretch of a coastline battered by rough tides and strong winds. To the left of the sheet is the city of St David's. Named after the patron saint of Wales, it was a place of Christian pilgrimage during the Middle Ages. Two journeys to St David's equalled one journey to Rome, and hundreds of British pilgrims flocked each year to the shrine at St David's Cathedral.
