Disgrifiad o´r Safle New Quay was a small fishing port until shipbuilding began there in the 18th century, reaching its peak in the middle of the 19th century after the addition of a new pier and quay in 1835, built by Daniel Beynon. New Quay also became popular as an import and export port from the start of the 19th century.

Associated industry included sail and rope making, and a foundry. There were also a number of schools in the area specialising in navigation and trigonometry.

After the railways came to west Wales in the later 19th century, New Quay's port declined, being replaced by tourism as the major economy.
