We started with a cup of coffee in the cafe next to the castle and then set off skirting the castle with the Afon Gwendraeth Fach on our right.
|The first of many green lanes|
|We were too late to apply|
Descending from Mynyddygarreg we passed by the ruin of Maes Gwenllian and onto a a minor road passing Capel Horeb an imposing red brick Methodist chapel.
Continuing down we came across a small holding with what appeared a large area for growing vegetables contained in a walled area much like a drained swimming pool. The veg was growing in raised beds formed from numerous old tyres.
|The good life|
|A good use of old tyres|
As we were having lunch the owner came past in a car and stopped for a chat. He told us the garden used to be a small reservoir which fed the gunpowder works in Pembrey.
|Lovely sign post.|
Following lunch we crossed the main road and headed uphill to eventually descend again into Kidwelly. Throughout the walk we walked along a number of splendid green lanes, some like tunnels covered in the recent autumn leaves.
|You looking at me?|
|Another green lane|
|But this is December|
