Members and friends of Côr Meibion Mynydd Mawr enjoyed a memorable and informative visit to the RAF Carew Cheriton near Pembroke on Saturday, August 3.

Several of the buildings at the former RAF base have been restored to their 1940’s condition by a team of dedicated volunteers.

The restoration work was based on the first hand experiences of personnel based on the site during the war.

The Control Tower at Carew Cheriton is unique in the UK as it is the only one that features a bay window.

What is little known is that the base was first used as a Royal Naval Air Station in 1915 with airships (“blimps”) protecting shipping and carrying out submarine patrols in the Western Approaches.
