Welcome to the Hook Village web site.

Welcome to Hook……….a Pembrokeshire village perched on the banks of the western Cleddau and surrounded by woodlands and a riverside environment that is of such quality that much of it has National Park status and international recognition as being of special interest.

Although there is little or no trace of it to be found today Hook once had a worldwide reputation as a mining village. Anthracite of such quality was mined there that it was exported literally all over the world. It is even said that Queen Victoria had such high regard for the virtually smokeless Hook anthracite that she would have no other fuel in the Royal palaces.

Sixty years after the demise of the mining industry Hook is a picturesque, tranquil village with a thriving school; two places of worship; a well-appointed social club and a wide range of organisations ranging from short mat bowls to a History Society; a long established cricket club which boasts trophy winning man and ladies teams and a league topping quiz team.

For the residents of Hook the aim is that these web pages will be the place where you can get news of what the village establishments are up to and what new events are planned for the future.  It is also intended as a repository for information such as the Community Council minutes, past newsletters and as a gallery for interesting photos taken by members of the community. For those from other communities it will, it is hoped serve as an invitation to learn about Hook’s fascination past and perhaps share, in some small way, in the events of today and into the future.

We hope you enjoy your visit to the site and we hope to soon be able to ensure that all members of the community will be able contribute to and comment on the content of the site.  New efforts are being made to ensure the Hook village web pages becomes a vibrant and popular place for news and information.
