The East Back

The East Back runs parallel to the Main Street which it rejoins at Elm Tree Square.  Here you can see one of the town’s original water taps near the former MOUNT PLEASANT BAPTIST CHAPEL which is also now an Antiques Centre: it is worth taking a look at this rather lovely chapel.

Next door was once located the EAST END ENGINEERING WORKS OF JOHN & ARCHIBALD STEPHENS & SON popularly known as KNACKY STEPHENS, now a private dwelling.  His workshop is no longer there but the building with its wrought iron gates dated 1873 remain – together with a handle in the cast of a child’s hand.

A display and archive of photographs of this enterprising Victorian business can be seen in Pembroke Museum.
