  2. I’m glad you ‘walked the walk’ after all that ‘talking the talk!!’. Of course, mentioning Llangiwg brings memory of dear Jenny, late of Garth and founder of the Friends of Llangiwg. But, probably unbeknown to you, I have a connection to Y Baran also. I totally rebuilt the wall around that lovely old chapel on the hill; in fact it was one of my first ‘paid’ jobs back in 1994. I’m enjoying your walking tales and lovely photos – what a lot of dry stone walls there seems to be along the Cisterian Way !!

    • Hello again. We’re hoping to move on with the Carmarthenshire section of the route – there is now a ferry from Ferryside to Llanstephan again, which makes it all a lot more doable. St Illtyd Walk to above Llanelli and find a way to cut across via the Gwendraeth.

  3. I’m having trouble posting this on the relevant page.

    I have family connections with Glentrothy House and indirectly with the Vaughn family. My maternal grandmother was a chambermaid there, as recorded on the 1911 census, having grown up in Goodrich/Welsh Bicknor on the main estate of the Vaughns at Courtfield. Re. your comment about accommodation nearby, there are two cottages on the Glentrothy Estate (thankfully not near the caravan park of the same name) which are bookable via Wye Valley Cottages. I’m due to stay for a few days in the Old Stables there later this month, so I will post more about it during or after my stay. Helen

    • Many thanks. No idea why the original posting didn’t work – but do let me know how you get on at the Old Stables. The whole Cistercian Way project is parked at the moment but we may get back to it.

      Best wishes – Maddy
