Llangwm (//; Welsh pronunciation: [ˈɬangʊm]) is a small village, parish and community of around 450 properties situated on the Llangwm Pill off the River Cleddau estuary near Haverfordwest, Pembrokeshire, Wales. It has a history of mining and fishing and is in the largely English-speaking south of the county.
It was famous in the past for its shellfish, and at Hook, in the north of the parish, anthracite used to be mined and shipped. Located in the hundred of Roose, at the heart of Little England beyond Wales, it has been largely English-speaking since the 12th century.
Popular for visitors throughout the year, with extensive use of the river estuary and local walks, the village holds a festival in the last week of June and the first week of July.
In 2014, residents of the village performed a musical piece to mark the centenary of the beginning of World War One. Entitled "WW1 - A Village Opera", the work, written by Pembrokeshire author and poet Peter George, with music by Llangwm resident Sue Howley, wove the stories of villagers affected by the war into the greater political narrative of the buildup to war.
