Dylan Thomas - Many  believe that New Quay is the 'cliff-perched town at the far end of Wales' immortalised by Dylan Thomas (see his Life story here ) in 'Under Milk Wood'. Dylan Thomas lived  in New Quay in 1944 in a little house called 'Majoda' atop the cliffs opposite the town. The Dylan Thomas Trail in New Quay takes the visitor to many of the places either frequented by Thomas or believed to be mentioned in 'Under Milk Wood'. Click on the photo for more.

The History of New Quay - In the early days New Quay was a fishing and smuggling port. Later a thriving shipbuilding industry developed, reaching its peak in the middle of the nineteenth century. Towards the end of that century shipbuilding died out, railways came to West Wales and tourism became the main industry. Click on the photo for more about New Quay's history.
