Carew Castle & Cross Picture

Brian's Celtic link is the family connection . . . my grandfather used to plough the field between the Carew Cross (shown on the left) and the castle in the background - with a team of horses, of course - 80 or so years ago!

Here are a couple of the Celtic Crosses we have visited: click on the thumbnail to see the full close up of the wonderful stonework (colour JPEGS, around 30K or so).

Carew cross is in Pembrokeshire (Dyfed). It was erected in the sixth century and inscribed some years afterwards in memory of Maredudd, King of South-West Wales.

The cross at Nevern - also in Pembrokeshire - is on the north coast. We think this one is a comparative youngster, being only around 900 years old . .

More on Celtic artifact searching later perhaps . . . in the meantime, some of our favourite places: Harlech Castle (yes, the one in the song!) looking north towards Snowdonia. Click the thumbnail for a view of Snowdonia itself. The other thumbnail will provide a picture is B's favourite part of the world - the scene is Blea Tarn, in the English Lake District.The tarns are formed in hollows dragged out of the high mountain-side by glaciers.It is not Wales, but it is quite nearby !
