Pembroke Town Walls Trust

About Pembroke Town Walls Trust

The trust was formed in 2011 by a group of town's people, including wall owners and representatives of organisations from the community. Other individuals also joined the trust, all united with the interest of seeking to ensure the preservation of the historic Town Walls of Pembroke.




Through working with partners and stakeholders, the project aims to protect and conserve the town's archaeology and promote the understanding of the historic site's potential to contribute to the social and economic benefit of the community. The benefits to the community would include local skills development, sustainable tourism development and would provide a sense of place.
