Llandeilo circular walk, Sunday 14th October 2012

Lovely 5 mile walk with Swansea Ramblers from Llandeilo along the river Twyi and into National Trust Parkland containing Dinefwr Castle and Newton House.

And as you can see, the weather was perfect!
How blue is that sky?!  Near the start of the walk, at Llandeilo Bridge

Steep steps down to the river - not our route, thankfully!
