Details: The pump and engine are running again for the benefit of Friends, families and St. Brides guests and the building has also been renovated by the Park recently. Chris Taylor will be on hand to show members around and answer any questions: it’ll be great to see the nearly 100 year old pump in operation. Everyone will have the opportunity to have a ‘hands-on’ role, but this is oily, moving machinery, and so do be careful. Chris would like to set up a small band of members who would be able to assist in the routine maintenance and demonstration of the facility, so talk to him if you are interested.
On completion Delun Gibby, the NPA archaeologist, will give a presentation on prehistoric Pembrokeshire.

Timings and Meeting Point: The pump house will be open from 13:30 to 16:00. There is no start time per se, so drop in at any time in that window. The pump house needs to close sharp at 16:00 to give Chris time to close up and make it to the archaeological presentation which starts at 16:30, for an hour, in the conservatory at St Brides Castle. There will be a cup of tea available at the start of the presentation.
There is ample car parking at St Brides Castle (SA62 3AL).
Lead Organiser: Chris Taylor (01646 600225) for the pump house and Ian Pattinson (01239 821631) for the archaeological presentation.
