Swansea/Heart of Wales Town Tour Journey Notes 2 - Llandeilo to Llandovery.

15.32 Leave Llandeilo with the River Tywi on our right. After about three miles, in the distance on our right, 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!

15.42 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. We continue to follow and then cross over the Tywi.

15.45 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 head north-east with the Tywi on our right and the A40 road on our left; just before we reach Llandovery, we cross over the river.

15.52 Arrive at Llandovery and leave the train.
