Brawdy ( ) is a village and parish in Pembrokeshiremarker, South West Walesmarker.

Location

Brawdy is situated at the northeast corner of St Brides Baymarker. The southern half of the parish is in the Pembrokeshire Coast National Parkmarker. The parish has 4 km of coastline accessible throughout by the Pembrokeshire Coast Path.

The parish includes the villages of Penycwm and Newgale ( ) , and the hamlets of Eweston ( ) , Tancredston ( ) and Trefgarn Owen .

During the second half of the 20th century, it was home to a large Fleet Air Arm and later an RAF basemarker.

Together with the parishes of Llandeloy and Llanreithan, it constitutes the community of Brawdy, which had a census population of 611 in 2001. With the community of Solvamarker, it makes up the Pembrokeshire ward of Solvamarker.

The Welsh language name appears to be an archaic form of "Bridget" and the parish may originally have been Llanfreudeth. The English name is a corruption of the Welsh.

The Pembrokeshire language frontier corresponds roughly with the southern boundary of the parish, and it has always been predominantly Welsh-speaking (excluding military personnel today from the Royal Signals Regiment who are based in the former RN and RAF base).

The parish had an area of 2240 Hectares. Its census populations were: 572 (1801): 753 (1851): 467 (1901): 425 (1951): 798 (1981, of which around 400 were military)
