Education Visits at the Pembroke Dock Heritage Centre.
The Pembroke Dock Heritage Centre, opened by the Queen in April, has a great many stories to tell. From the history of the Royal Dockyard which built over 260 ships and 5 Royal Yachts to the oil tank fire which raged for 14 days and is described as second only to the Great Fire of London in 1666 in its scale. Our Education programme, staffed by volunteers, covers these subjects along with the story of RAF Pembroke Dock which was the largest Flying Boat base in the world in wartime.
A skilled and enthusiastic team of over 60 Volunteers including several retired teachers, supports the Trust’s education activities, involving themselves in all areas of the project. The Trust is passionate about ensuring that children and young people keep history alive.
