Talk: A History of Castllemartin Tank Range - May 16th

Last Friday our speaker was Craig Stringer, of Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, who came to speak to us about the History of the Castlemartin Tank Range.  We have come to make the Castlemartin Range an annual event each May and, such is the interest that it always proves popular.   Craig is well known to us in the History Society as he has taken us previously on a tour of the Farmsteads of the Castlemartin Tank Range, a rare opportunity to see buildings and a seascape which are normally out of bounds. Access is permitted occasionally but only on a conducted tour or guided walk.

Tales of the Pembroke River - Saturday 3rd May

At the Saturday Coffee Morning of May 3rd, Linda and Stuart Asman gave a presentation entitled 'Tales of the Pembroke River' which traced the River's Story from prehistoric times to the end of Pembroke's maritime history in 1960 when the Kathleen & May made her last visit to Pembroke's North Quay, bringing to an end the era of coastal trading.
