Ilkeston Cam On Holiday 2002 - South West Wales
Part 16 - Pembroke Dock

The photos on this page were taken on Friday 19th July

The Friday of our holiday was a relaxing day just driving round admiring the scenery and going nowhere in particular, stopping when the fancy took us. Our picnic lunch was eaten on the southern bank of the Milford Haven estuary near to Pembroke Dock. These schoolchildren were just finishing a sailing lesson almost opposite Burton Ferry (see Part 09), a place we had visited on the opposite bank earlier in the week.

A few minutes later all the sails had been furled and the craft were were safely parked in the shelter of the rock face.
Driftwood And Seaweed

A hive of activity on our arrival had quickly turned to a quite peaceful setting in a matter of minutes leaving just driftwood and seaweed on the rocks at the water's edge.
Irish Ferry 

After lunch a short journey took us to Pembroke Dock where the Irish Ferry was preparing to leave for Rosslare in Ireland.
Colourful Vessel

Twenty four miles of sheltered waters make this an ideal place for yachting and other water sports but even for landlubbers like myself, colourful vessels provide attractive sights and bring pleasure to the eye.
Martello Tower

The town of Pembroke Dock grew up around the Royal Dockyard established by the Admiralty about 200 years ago. It closed in 1926 but in its lifetime fortifications were built to defend the docks. One of the Martello towers has been restored and now houses a display tracing the military history of the area.
