In this section we invite you to travel back in time and explore the rich cultural history of the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park.
The landscape of the Pembrokeshire Coast is one that has been occupied by people since prehistoric times. The hills, valleys and spectacular coastal scenery that we see today owe as much to human activity as to the forces of nature.
The relics of past peoples can be found everywhere and include Iron Age hill forts and burial mounds from the earliest of times, majestic castles and churches. Great examples of these historical gems are Castell Henllys Iron Age Village, Carew Castle and Tidal Mill, St David’s Cathedral, Victorian mining remains at Stepaside, the brickworks at Porthgain, and the many airfields that remind us of the more recent conflicts of two world wars.
