Experience a Unique Pembrokeshire Attraction
Built to a ‘local’ design, Carew Cheriton Control Tower uniquely features a bay window. Now restored to its 1940’s condition by our team of dedicated volunteers, based on first hand experiences from personnel based on the site during the war.
Take a trip back in time and experience the Control Tower as it would have been during the war years. In addition we have also reconstructed a Stanton Air Raid Shelter and have now collected a huge range of wartime exhibits in our museum.

Members of the Cresselly & District branch of the Royal British Legion pay their respects at the Carew Cheriton war graves.
I'd just like to thank you all so much for another fantastic visit to the control tower, which was made all the better due to the time, patience and enthusiasm that you showed to the children during our visit. It was truly invaluable. The children have really enjoyed learning about both world wars, and have shown so much interest, understanding and compassion, which was mainly due to the invaluable experience that they gained from you all at Carew Cheriton.Deputy Headteacher (Ysgol Glan Cleddau)
