Terry's Civil War Walk

Despite the rain, 20 brave souls turned up for our Civil War Walk led by Terry John who is an expert on the subject and a popular speaker. He makes it so interesting. We walked around the Castle and along the Millpond walk and were able to see where the guns were sited which did such damage to Pembroke during the Second Civil War when Poyer changed sides and backed the King. Bad move and bad for Pembroke as we lost our town gates, much of the walls and castle! An interesting detour was made courtesy of Margaret and Thalia - we were able to visit the Mediaeval Chapel which was part of the York where Cromwell made his headquarters after taking Pembroke.
