Walwyn’s Castle Village Hall

Walwyn’s Castle Village Hall

The Village Hall was originally a primary school for the village and surrounding area, which backed onto the schoolhouse. The school closed in the early 1960’s.  Through fund raising and contributions from parishioners, the hall was purchased for use by the community.  It was refurbished in 1978 and a further refurbishment and modernisation with help of a Lottery fund grant took place in 2002. Walwyn’s Castle Village Hall all is a registered charity, Walwyn’s Castle Village Hall CIO, run by volunteer trustees.
Walwyn’s Castle is situated in land of St Brides Bay. Its picturesque rural mid Pembrokeshire location is easily accessible, being approximately 2 miles from Broad and Little Haven., 4 miles East of Milford Haven and 6 miles West of Haverfordwest. The Village centre is dominated by the Norman church of St James the Great, the medieval church undergoing substantial renovation in the 19th century. The village hall and Old School house are situated next to the church and church yard and a large village green backs on to the wooded valley below. The remains of an iron age fort or ‘Rath’ is well defined in the field alongside the Church yard, and gives a clue to the village name.  Foot paths to the pretty ‘Rosemoor’ Lake start from the Village Hall car park
