Clynderwen (Welsh: Clunderwen) (SN133198) is a rural village in Pembrokeshire, Wales. The village is known as a camping destination and is popular for self-catering holidays. It also a community of Pembrokeshire but it does not have its own community council.
History The village is on a road to the West Wales coast adjacent to the Preseli Hills (where the stones from Stonehenge were quarried) and owes its more recent origins to the advent of the railways in the 19th Century. The Great Western Railway line from London to the West coast ports of Milford Haven, Neyland and Fishguard all pass through the village and a rail junction for the line to Fishguard existed until the 1950's. As the railways expanded they became instrumental in the development of local economies and Clynderwen became a point where agricultural produce, livestock, etc, were transhipped.
A small hotel was built next to the railway station and, for the next 100, or so years, the village gently expanded. Nowadays it is within easy commuting distance of the nearby towns, but its function as a centre of the local agricultural community has long since ceased. In or just after 2001 the village was moved from Carmarthenshire to Pembrokeshire and a namechange to Clunderwen was proposed to reflect the actual usage on signs by the community council.
