Brief description

"Pembrey Training Dome, built to train air gunners in WW2, is sited in the Old Pembrey Airfield. Over 3,000 air gunners trained there. The Dome is a Scheduled Ancient Monument and Grade 2 listed. It is the only surviving dome in Wales and one of only 6 left in the UK out of the 44 built originally.

It is at a working farm, so unfortunately dogs are not allowed."
