Looking Back

Pembrokeshire is a fantastic location full of unspoilt beaches, spectacular views, rolling hills and rugged landscapes as well as boasting a rich history. But try to imagine a Pembrokeshire covered in ice during the last Ice Age or a foreshore of forests now submerged by the rising tide.

Carew Castle and Tidal Mill

In this Looking Back section you can meet our heritage team and learn about how the National Park Authority is working to conserve Pembrokeshire’s history and culture. You can also learn more about the fantastic heritage sites in the Park such as Carew Castle and Tidal Mill, Castell Henllys Iron Age Hill Fort, the archaeological dig at Nevern Castle, local geology and historical landscapes.

We have many sites in the National Park that act as big clues about what life was like in Pembrokeshire hundreds, if not thousands, of years ago. From Bronze Age burial chambers and Iron Age hill forts to castles, churches and World War I and II look-out stations. Pembrokeshire literally wears its history on its sleeve and there’s a lot we can learn from it.

Don’t forget we’re also on Facebook, Youtube, Flickr and Twitter! Sound like a different language? Then click on the links and find out more. Join up, become a fan, download some pictures or videos of the National Park. Just get involved!
