East | Fishguard

Entering Haverfordwest from the east, the obvious straight ahead route is actually the A487 to St Davids. The A40 makes an abrupt turn northwards to carry the main traffic flow, which is to Fishguard for the ferry to Rosslare. A look at a map of Haverfordwest will show you the old alignments of the A40. Before the northeastern bypass was built, the road ran along the Fishguard Road, some of which is itself a newer alignment. Current Ordnance Survey maps still label Fishguard Road as A40, which suggests that Fishguard Road is now a spur of the A40.

Having spent the last 280 miles heading in a more-or-less westerly direction we are now heading north along the Western Cleddau valley towards Fishguard. The last section, along the harbour side (The Parrog) is actually a multiplex with the A487 (although the A40 number is dominant). From here it's back along the A487 to St Davids or across the Irish Sea to Rosslare.
