The Welsh town of Pembroke Dock is known for its long-lasting connection to the maritime industry, due to its role as a dockyard for the Royal Navy from 1814 to 1926. The area relied heavily on the production of battleships and frigates for employment and the town prospered and expanded rapidly during the hundred or so years that the dockyard was in existence.
The local landscape changed from farmland to an established town where a market, church and homes were built to accommodate the increasing numbers of workers and their families. Nowadays the ships have gone and the Royal Naval Dockyard hosts a museum commemorating famous naval conflicts, including the Battle of the Atlantic.
