Guide to Roch:Â
Roch is a small village in Pembrokeshire, nestled alongside Newgale in the western part of the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park. Its name derives from Norman French, coined la Roche in 1271, which translates to â€œthe rockâ€.Â
The nearby coastline is made up of stunning cliffsides and dunes that marry up to Newgale beach, a favourite spot for sunbathing and surfing in the warmer months. The area has a fascinating history, having been the heart of the coal mining industry from the medieval times up until 1905.
In the village itself, the majestic castle proudly towers over the valley. This 12th-century building was one of several border strongholds used to protect the Welsh inhabitants within the surrounding areas. Due to its proximity to the sea, the castle was also used as a lookout for coastal invasions. The first recorded inhabitant of the castle was Adam de Rupe, a Norman knight.
This, however, is not the only piece of fascinating history in Roch, with one of the last remaining water mills just a little way up the river, restored to full working condition including a water wheel! This gem makes the treks along the riverside a wonder for keen walkers. History buffs will also enjoy the nearby Cuffern Manor.
