About Us

Pembroke Dock Sunderland Trust is a charity registered in England and Wales, number: 1120476. Company registration no: 05920931.

Pembroke Dock has more than two hundred years of well recorded military heritage that stretches even further back to Henry Tudor’s invasion of 1485.  Pembroke Dock Sunderland Trust aims to share this unique history and experience with the world through the Pembroke Dock Heritage Centre, based in the Georgian Royal Dockyard Chapel.

 

History

Pembroke Dock once had a thriving shipbuilding industry dating from about 1785, building more than 250 ships and sea craft including all five of the Royal Yachts that preceded Britannia.  Very few people are aware of this substantial maritime heritage though much of the man made landscape confirms the activity.

Pembroke Dock was the world’s largest ever Flying Boat port and is unique in that it is the only town within the UK that had an association with all three UK  Armed services – the Royal Navy, the Army and the Royal Air Force at the same point in history.
