Hay on Wye has so much to explore
This blog is to encourage others to visit and enjoy it as much as I did. Having beautiful cousins Babs and Derek to drive me from Rhoose was such a bonus. They were not as keen on the book side of things, but found a cosy cafe for a rest and cost-free toilet while I ambled around.
Booktown Books, Antiques and Collectibles, Historical Monuments etc……images are very powerful and I need to regather my energy for the days ahead, so here is the picture gallery.
Tribute to Richard Booth for his vision, stickability, castle above and progress…
Off the back of the King of the Castle’s vision are the other quirky, cute, hard-working businesses and architecture. Great town to visit!
Bucket book list #3 done.
Next it was off to St Fagan’s Welsh Life Village………closer back to Barry and the south coast of Wales.
From replica houses in 50 year increments of chronological changes in size, lighting, furniture, hygiene and food raising, to larger village structures such as the Unitarian Church with its minimalism, to the imposing Workmens Institute, and all the infrastructures needed for families of bygone ages to thrive. Really needs many hours to take it all in. The local blue brie and typical oatcakes were very welcome from the store. Enjoy the village visit.
