St Davids head, a headland in Pembrokeshire, South Wales. As Sir Richard Cold Hoare wrote in his "Journal of a Tour of South Wales" in 1793: "No place could ever be more suited to retirement, contemplation or Druidical mysteries, surrounded by inaccessible rock and open to a wide expanse of ocean. Nothing seems wanting but the thick impenetrable groves of oaks which have been thought concomitant to places of Druidical worship and which, from the exposed nature of this situation, would never, I think, have existed here even in former days."
