Haverfordwest Town Council owns THE PICTON CENTRE on Freemen’s Way, Haverfordwest.

The Picton Centre is named after Picton Castle as it stands on land, Picton Playing Fields, that was gifted to the town by the Philipps family of the Picton Castle Estate

PICTON HOUSE in Picton Place is owned by Pembrokeshire County Council, and occupied by the offices of Haverfordwest Town Council and Unison. Picton House was named after Picton Castle, having been built by the Philipps family in the later 1830’s as their town house

THE USE OF THE NAME PICTON IN THE TWO PROPERTIES RELATES TO THEIR ASSOCIATION TO THE PICTON CASTLE ESTATE.

To avoid any confusion relating to the name Picton, the organisers of the Black Lives Matter event to be held on 10 June 2020 have been advised of this information

There is NO association with Sir Thomas Picton.
