Carmarthen Castle

My walk this week around Carmarthen took in the part of the castle. There is a lot more to the castle than I am showing here but you will not find these photos on Castles of Wales website. The images on the Castles of Wales site are clearly less recent than my own and do not show that there is now a metal spiral staircase rising to the room above the castle gate where this window is situated along with a flag pole which made a very noticeable sound in the wind.

Having walked along King Street I arrived at an open square (not square) and from there entered the castle where I found interpretation panels with rusty cast iron figures telling about life in the time of Rhys ap Gruffudd. The flag stones that had been laid had the odd one or two with rippling water patterns on them which seemed appropriate given that the castle overlooks the river Towy.

  1. For some reason I’m not getting the daily email with the blog link. I’ve checked and looks like I’m still listed as ‘following’ so hopefully by sending comment that will get me back in the loop!

    • Hmm that’s a worry. I’m not posting every day now though Barbara, just Mon, Wed, Fri and Saturday for the walk review. Please let me know if the problem continues. Thanks very much.
