Welcome to the Hook Village web site.

Welcome to Hook Village ……….Hook is a Pembrokeshire village perched on the banks of the Western Cleddau.  Hook is surrounded by woodlands and a riverside environment, with much of the village having National Park status. Parts of the village also have International recognition as being of special interest.

Although  little 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. 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 shop and Post Office. There are a organisations ranging from short mat bowls to a History Society, a long established cricket club which boasts trophy winning men’s, ladies and junior teams.

The aim of this website is that it will be the place where our residents can get news of what the village establishments are up to.  and what new events are planned for the future.  It is also intended to bring 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 is hoped it will serve as an invitation to learn about Hook’s fascinating  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.
