I wandered the streets of Avergavenny tonight and will have to go back with my camera in the daylight having found the "town house" of the Vaughan's of Tretower. It's really something, but I don't want to oversell. I had to buy another Cadbury and asked for change in coin which seemed like the right way to phrase it as the Tesco checker gave pound coins. They are a necessity here for parking in some places and many other uses. Oh yeah, I found where Tesco is in Abergavenny. It's just a small grocery one.
I had to stop at Raglan to buy my Senior Cadw (Welsh Heritage) Pass. I can't even get the Park Service's Golden Eagle yet, but I'm good here! I only have to visit three sites to break even and I can cover that. And, I'll be back in August!
So the first pics are at Raglan looking for those new angles. And they are there:
|The repaired parapet on the tower to the right of entrance.|
|The flag was still streaming o'er the ramparts|
|The Yellow Tower of Gwent still impresses.|
And I noticed here that it shows a great example of strong walls with dressed stone on the outer and inner
filled in between with cobbles and cement (lime)
|Y Skirrid Fawr, the Sacred Mountain, in the distance.|
And yes, there is an ancient yew at Llanfoist. It's at the opposite side of the churchyard from John's grave.
