What a wonderful church. I grew up in Carmarthen but never set foot in this church, we were chapel. Definitely worth a look around. Chatted to the verger(I think he was the verger) who was so welcoming and friendly. Thank you for your welcome.

Parish Church of Carmarthen and a beautiful old church. I was there to attend a concert by Mark Llewelyn Evans to help raise funds for the restoration work needed to rescue this church.

This is a well known and documented church that has a lot of history behind it and it is certainly ´worth a look. It is just 5 minutes walk from hotel.
