Exhibition - the Making of Henry at St Mary's Church

An exhibition of photographs showing the processes involved in the making of the Henry VII statue is currently on show in St Mary's Church, Pembroke.  Henry was baptised in St Mary's Church and here you can see a fine, stained glass window of the King by Thomas Kempe.

Despite the rain, crowds turned out on Saturday to the unveiling of the Henry VII statue - everyone appears delighted with our beautiful statue installed on the Mill Bridge and standing proud against the stunning backdrop of Pembroke Castle.  Our sculptor Harriet Addyman has done an amazing job, so talented - we are all so proud of her and what has been achieved for our town, the birthplace of the first Tudor monarch and the first Welshman to sit on the English throne.
