Accommodation Local Services

Llangwm Local History Society

Llangwm Local History Society was founded in June 2002 and currently has upwards of 60 members. Membership is just £5 per annum and includes free refreshments at all our talks. The fee for non-members is £2 per talk including refreshments.

Monthly meetings take the form of evening talks in the village hall or visits to local places of interest, museums, etc. These are generally held around the second Wednesday of each month, but watch for posters and notifications on Llangwm Facebook page (members sign up to receive emails).

In the past few years the History Society has commemorated those Llangwm men who gave their lives in World War One. Services have been held, a major exhibition mounted - we even commissioned a village opera, which went on to win a national award.

Research into all aspects of Llangwm’s past is constantly being done. The cemetery graves have been mapped (details are available through the Pembrokeshire Archive) and the churchyard graves are in the process of being mapped. We also work closely with St Jerome’s Church in their Heritage project discovering the Flemish roots of the village.

Llangwm Local History Society is a member (along with Pembroke and Monkton, Hook, Penally and Coastlands) of the Five Communities group which aims to identify, catalogue and make digitally available each group's respective archive material. For more information on this project please click here.
