Every community in Pembrokeshire has a rich and diverse history from prehistoric times to the present day.

To explore this rich diversity, PLANED and its predecessors, SPARC and TCRI, have helped establish heritage groups in the county and enable them to undertake research and preservation of their past. Many groups utilised this research to produce heritage leaflets (and interpretation panels) which give a wonderful glimpse into their community’s history.

Heritage exhibitions, consolidation, restoration and preservation work, oral history recording and interpretation panels have all resulted from community history work. Many more links and working partnerships have been formed with local organisations involved in the preservation of the county’s past: namely the County Museum at Scolton, County record office and Local Studies Library in Haverfordwest, Dyfed Archaeological Trust in Llandeilo.
