Pembrey Country Park is firmly established as one of Wales' top attractions. With its award winning golden sandy beach, dry ski slope, toboggan ride, crazy golf, pitch and putt, miniature train rides, adventure play area, equestrian centre and a variety of nature trails, there is something for the whole family.

The haunted area...
From the nineteenth century gunpowder and dynamite was produced in the forest. By the dawn of the first world war a large ordinance factory was built to increase production of munitions. As World War 2 approached it became the Royal Ordnance Factory and saw massive expansion. Close by was an RAF Airfield Spitfires flew many sorties during the years of war, not surprisingly there were many crashes as badly damaged aircraft tried to make it home.
It is said that the ghost of an airman haunts to remains of the Royal Ordnance Factory and the surrounding forest, carrying a terrible curse, as anyone witnessing this vision is said to die within the week of the sighting...

On entering the park, several abandoned bunkers are visible, these being the remains of the former Royal Ordnance Factory that closed in 1965. Upon further exploration (particularly of the wooded trails) many, many more bunkers and tunnels of differing sizes and shapes can be found.
The woods and bunkers provided a focus point for an episode of Living TV's Most Haunted, which was aired in April 200.


The cache is a medium sized clip lock container with lots of room for swaps.
