Funding boost for the Pembroke Town Walls Trust Pilot Project.

The Pembroke Town Walls Trust is delighted to announce that the Pilgrim Trust have formally awarded £20,000 towards the Pilot Project, and the Pembrokeshire Historic buildings Trust has also pledged another £2000 together with an in principle award from Cadw of £20,000, and this money together with a £50,000 ‘Our Heritage’ Lottery bid, if successful, will mean that that most of the monies required to fund the project have been raised. 

The Pembroke Town Walls Trust are working in partnership with the Pembroke 21C Community Association and the Tabernacle United Reformed Church to rejuvenate an unused garden to the rear of the Tabernacle Chapel on Main Street Pembroke.

It will become a garden for the community, and will be planted with a mediaeval herb garden, and other planting to reflect different periods of the town’s history, together with interpretation panels, and a place of quiet reflection. The garden has a natural cave, a former lime kiln, examples of historic burgage walls, and the pedestrian access through the site up to Main Street will be developed re-using the former terracing and long since buried steps.
