About the Project
The Pembroke Town Wall Trust is working in partnership with Pembroke 21C and the Tabernacle to create a public garden that will celebrate the rich heritage of Pembroke. The Town Walls Trust are restoring the Medieval burgage walls and will be using it to showcase the sustainable restoration of the walls. The site will become a unique attraction for the people of Pembroke and the many tourists who visit this town. This project involves working with schools and training providers to develop new skills and get young people excited about the history and heritage of the place they live. The interactive displays and resources we produce will be interesting and accessible to young people and will help people to understand the significance and impact of the Town Walls to Pembroke over time.
