TRECASTLE, AND THE NORMAN RUIN OUTSIDE OLD-WORLD LLANDOVERY

TRECASTLE, AND THE NORMAN RUIN OUTSIDE OLD-WORLD LLANDOVERY

Trecastle (bottom) once possessed a castle from which the hamlet derived its name; it stood on a hill to the right where now there is little but a clump of trees. Though fallen from its ancient importance, the little town is a good starting point for mountain walks in the neigh­bourhood. Shortly after passing through it the road leaves Brecon and enters Carmarthenshire at Llandovery, at the confluence of the Towy and the Bran. Its ruined castle (top), forlorn on a knoll just outside the town, is of Norman origin.
