Lovely bright day so we decided to go for a walk in the sunshine before we settle down  in front of the TV for the afternoon to watch Wales play Scotland at Murrayfield

We left the car at Llangadog Common and walked across the road to take a new walk through the fields.

Sign : Llangadog held the first horse racing in 1884 traditionally a race is held in the locality every Easter Monday. This art work commemorates the 125 years anniversary (2009)

Our walk continued across the fields and back onto the back road leading out of Llangadog.  Further along this road we came to the cemetery. There was a new section and the old part had gravestones going back to the mid 1800’s.

Following the road back to our car we crossed a little stone bridge with a bench mark engraved into the stone and the date when the bridge was built.

    I used to go to Llangadog races every year as a teenager. Your photographs brought back many memories. Also I never knew there was a gallery in Llangadog. I must visit it someday Thank you Marianne
