Caerfarchell (Welsh pronunciation: [kaɪrvɑːrxɛɬ]) is a small village in Pembrokeshire, Wales, 3 miles east of St Davids. It is in the civil parish of Whitchurch.

Description[edit]

Several houses are built around a small village green.

In 2001 the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Authority drew up a conservation statement with the help of villagers[1]

History[edit]

It is believed the village originated in the 14th or 15th centuries.[2] An early 19th century farm building opposite the chapel is Grade II-listed.[3]

Chapel[edit]

A Calvinist Methodist Chapel was built in 1763 and replaced by the current building in 1827. It is Grade II* listed.[4][5]
