Shrewsbury/Heart of Wales Town Tour Journey Notes 4 - Llandovery to Llandeilo.

12.56 Leave Llandovery. After a mile, we cross over the River Tywi and head south-west with the river on our left and the A40 road on our right.

(13.02) Llanwrda. The village has a population of some 500 and is a few hundred yards from the station to our right. A book published in 2004 claims that St Cwrdaf Church in Llanwrda is the resting place of Owain Glyndwr, the last native Welshman to hold the title of Prince of Wales. We continue to follow and then cross over the Tywi.

(13.06) Llangadog. The station is on the A4069 which links the A40 to the village, half a mile to our left; it has about 1,000 inhabitants. Llangadog had a castle which was destroyed in 1204 and a market which was frequented by drovers into the 19th century. Two miles further on, in the distance on our left, is a village best known for its little Post Office. Each year people send their Christmas cards to be stamped with the village post mark - as it is called Bethlehem!

13.15 Arrive at Llandeilo and leave the train.
