Visiting Monkton Dovecote
On Saturday October 2nd our coffee morning and exhibition was very well attended with a large group making the walk over Priory Farm fields to see the Mediaeval Dovecote. The dovecote, which has been recently restored by Pembrokeshire County Council, is contemporary with the Priory. While it was interesting to learn about the history of the dovecote, what was so fascinating were the affectionate memories it evoked, many people participating by relating their stories including the horse races which took place here. It was a wonderful morning and we were overwhelmed that so many did join us, many travelling from across South Pembrokeshire. I must add that the Dovecote is situated on private land and that we are indebted to Mr and Mrs Wyn Jenkins for allowing us to view it.
