We're taking a trip up to Abergavenny . . .

Do you remember that song?  Gosh, seems like half a lifetime away now.  Anyway, today we took advantage of a sunny day and headed Eastwards along the beautiful Usk Valley, and visited the Fleamarket held in the Market Hall at Abergavenny.  I have shown flying goats before - this time it was Owls that featured, and they were stunning.  A longer post tomorrow . . . promise.







Views in the Usk Valley.




Above and below: the beautiful Trewtower Court.  More words and photos tomorrow.

  2. Abergavenny is in the Harry Potter books that I used to read to my kids. We would wonder what Abergavenny looked like. Guess now I have a peek. Lovely

    1. My kids have read the Harry Potter books - didn't know Abergavenny was in them. It's such a beautiful area round there.

  5. Used to play in the USK behind my gran's in Brecon as a child, catching fry in a shrimp net! Walk to pencelli along the canal that crosses the Usk in an aquaduct. Happy times.

  6. I used to catch Minnows in a tiny laneside stream in the New Forest Simon. Simple pleasures. Glad I have brought some back for you too.

  7. Lovely photos Jennie, Tretowers was a beautiful day out for us to, was there not a poet who lived there, Herbert or something?

  8. No poets Thelma, it was the families of the Pychards (Picards) and Vaughans who lived there (see Wikipedia entry) and a connection to Owain Glyndwr too. I love it because our house must have been very similar (though smaller) in that same period of the late 1400s.
