Apologies I didn't get a chance to update my last post with the photos taken along the route. Here they are now. This is looking across country, Eastwards, near the farm which used to belong to old Isaac and his wife Rosina, now pushing up daisies.
One field along to the left from the first photo. Black Mountain hidden by low cloud.
Up the top of Colomendy Hill looking towards Carmarthen. I think it's the middle one which is Merlin's Hill. Sadly, not topped with the Crystal Cave that Mary Stewart wrote about - though there is a very down to earth mucky spring at the bottom of it!
Looking across the Towy Valley.
Looking back on my route. That farmhouse is Colomendy Farm. The double hedgerow behind and above it is the line of the lane - a very steep hill to go up or down. Sadly, the verges had been scalped late last year so no primrose flowers and scarce any leaves.
Above and below: Right round the loop. The top lane I walked along to reach Isaac's farm and then Colomendy is just behind these trees. You can see the hedgerow of it in the photo below.
The lovely old oak tree in the centre of this parkland.
Look, RAINBOW SHEEP!!!
The motte and bailey of the old Norman castle in the grounds of Alltyferin.
A long view across the Towy valley to Paxton's Tower.
Back tomorrow I hope, with a proper roundup.
