Nearly 70 years since I lived here and went to school. Found memories visiting old haunts and walking the streets of ancient Carmarthen.

Never having been to Carmarthen before we sought the help of the Tourist office - staffed by Merlin. She provided maps - including a couple of walks, Names of places for Coffee etc. And a reminder of good behaviour. A time in the cells!
