Medieval Merchant's House Re-erected At St Fagans: National History Museum
Royal Commission aerial photograph of Haverfordwest, taken in 2000.

Tower House’, Haverfordwest is a unique example of a secure sixteenth-century quayside storehouse. It has a stone-vaulted, fire-proof, ground-floor store-room with living accommodation above reached by an outside staircase. This building became derelict and was taken down stone by stone in 1983, and after much painstaking work has been re-erected at the National History Museum, St Fagans. Tonight (20 April 2012) a BBC documentary tells the story of its historic context and its re-erection at St Fagans: 'Brick-by-brick: rebuilding our past' (Series 1, episode 3) presented by Dan Cruickshank and Charlie Luxton.
