St Davids Airfield

During World War II St Davids Airfield was the scene of constant activity as an RAF Coastal Command base engaged in the Battle of the Atlantic. Today St Davids Airfield is a peaceful place. In spring skylarks now fill the air with their persistent song.

In the mid 1990s the National Park Authority bought most of the disused airfield and began a major landscaping project to restore and recreate wildlife habitats and safeguard public access and enjoyment. The remainder of the airfield was returned to farming use.

Footpaths and cycleways cross the former airfield.

Part of the airfield is now classed as a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) and includes heath and wetland of national importance. The stone circle dates from 2002, when the national Eisteddfod of Wales was hosted on the site.
