Sumary of Brooding beauty: why Carmarthenshire is Wales’ best-kept secret:
- Stretches of sand dune, salt marsh and old military installations lead to a verdant parkland and pine forestOne of the reasons I like South Wales is that its open spaces abut industrial and post-industrial landscapes.
- In front of Llanelli’s Furnace Theatre, in town, a monument called Industrial Symphony honours male and female workers;
- Locals still know the building, which has solar power, as The Billets in reference to an RAF air/sea rescue base that used to occupy the site.
- This tussling for power is a reminder that the so-called Landsker line – the once-fortified division between Anglophone and Welsh-speaking Wales – passes close to here.
