Kymer's Canal / Camlas Kymer

I have visited Kidwelly a couple of times recently for work. It is a small town in Carmarthenshire, South West Wales. Being in this area in Winter, I was almost guaranteed damp weather at best. Regardless of this, it was still a pleasant discovery and I was happy to return for my second visit.

On my first visit, I discovered Kymer’s Canal or in Welsh, Camlas Kymer. It is the remnant of the original waterway that linked up the Pwllygod Collieries to Kidwelly Quay on the Gwendraeth Fach and the marshes and mudflats of the River Towy estuary.

So this week I am going to follow my short walks around this area with a mixture of photos from both my iPhone and Canon cameras.

More shots will be posted on Instagram.

  1. Hadn’t seen the canal, so thanks for these pics. Hopefully though there’ll be some castle photos — impressive ruins even if not as famous and visited as, say, Cilgerran.

    • My pleasure 🙂 There will indeed be some shots featuring the castle through the week. I have not been into it yet but it certainly looks like it merits a visit. Thanks.

    • Thanks – I am very happy to do so and will certainly be visiting again. I have yet to have a look inside the castle and the church looks like it has quite a bit of history too. I didn’t know the industrial museum so thanks for that 🙂

  2. Thanks for highlighting our beautiful but relatively unknown part of the world. if you are in the area Kidwelly Industrial Museum and St Mary’s Church are well worth a look.
