Pembroke's history is a relatively recent one, with the first habitations of note being a set of barracks and facilities constructed for officers. These barracks were built in a then isolated area to allow for training. In fact, a shooting range still exists in the vicinity, as do several other communal buildings related to training, education and entertainment of soldiers and staff. Most of these buildings are today still in use, with many having been transformed into residences. To the south and east, a small residential area has sprung up, with large terraced houses and some more recent apartments dominating the scene.
