Llangors lake is reportedly the only place outside Scotland or Ireland which has a crannog! This makes the area very special and suggests links bbetween Ireland and Wales in the 8th-9th century. Just a note though; the crannog shown in this picture is a modern recreation.
Llandyfeisant Church, hiding in the woods on the outskirts of Llandeilo and one of my all time favourite places, is beautiful and currently unused. Deemed unsafe it has now been locked up and is being left to its own accord. It is a brilliantly tranquil place to sit and watch over the Towy Valley and is well worth a visit en route to Dinefwr Castle.
Often, when looking over the Ordnance Survey maps of the Brecon Beacons area, I came across many amusing translations. However, when walking around Brecon town one day I came across one of the best examples of faulty translation in the form of a street name. Translated correctly, ‘Heol Y Defaid’ means ‘Sheep Street’, not ‘Ship Street’ (unless of course Breconshire sheep float…).
A view I shall always love and one that I’ll photograph for many years over the years! The westerly view down the River Towy from half way along Llandeilo bridge.
A day out to Craig y Nos Country Park had us meet many ducks. There seem to be a lot of ducks in the National Park!! Although not in focus I do love this picture.
A guided walk last Saturday up to Twyn-y-Gaer Iron Age Fort near the Mountain Centre led us to these spectacular views.
In search of archaeology; a walk around the Black Mountain on a wonderfully beautiful day searching for old things!
