The character of Pembrokeshire has been shaped by its geology. Poor soils are formed on the rocks
to the north. This area retains a strong Welsh character. To the south, the more richer soils were
favoured by English settlers. The underlying rocks tend to make the soil acidic. The adding of lime
enhances its fertility. Many old limekilns can still be seen dotted around the coast.
