Welcome to Rosemarket Local History Society

We are a group of volunteers interested in the ancient village of Rosemarket in Pembrokeshire. With a story that began in the Iron Age some 2000 years ago, we research and publish articles across a wide range of topics, with new content added to this website on an ongoing basis.
