Echoes / Ecomuseums

Pioneering coastal communities are leading an ecomuseum movement in Pembrokeshire.

‘Echoes of the Past’ emphasises the value of taking time to explore an area at leisure, gaining a rounded view of heritage in its widest sense, as part of an ecomuseum, or ‘museum without walls’ experience, popular in other parts of Europe and well-suited to this diverse county.

St Dogmaels to St Davids; Dale; Marloes; St Ishmaels and St Brides, to Pembroke Dock; Saundersfoot, and Amroth…

Linked by the Pembrokeshire Coast Path, each different in character but all offering a warm welcome and local insight into layers of landscape, seascape, people, language, culture and traditions.

The Pinog; the Incline; Porth Clais; The Smalls, The Bitches; Bentlass; Pennar Gut; and Stepaside: place names alone spark the imagination. New Year’s Day traditions like Dale peninsula’s wren in a cage; local recipes like St Davids Bara Planc or myths, poems and sea shanties: Pembrokeshire is an enticing blend of places, people, tastes, scents and sounds.

These enterprising communities have a flair for sharing their heritage in all sorts of ways. From archaeology days to twmpaths; pancakes to poems; reminiscence sessions to i-beacon technology and military yomps to wartime teatimes.

Visiting special places, delving into history, learning from local people, dipping into festivals; taking part in arts and crafts, tasting the freshest produce, walking ancient paths…

Returning again and again to experience the best of Pembrokeshire’s heritage.
