|Great support in Monkton Church Hall|
Thanks to everyone who support our St David's event in Monkton Town Hall. The soup was delicious and everyone had a good time! I am pleased to report that we raised £352 for Monkton Priory Church.
|Pembroke Castle Wales - JMW Turner 1826|
So many of the great topographical artists came here in the 18th and 19th Centuries to paint the Castle, paintings which were later made into engravings. There are several Turner paintings of Pembroke but he actually only came here once in 1795 - his paintings were made at a later date from copious notes and sketches made during that visit.
