Dylan’s Shed


If you are making haste through South Wales for the afternoon ferry back to Ireland, allot some time to visit the gorgeous village of Laugharne and its sumptuous estuary, synonymous with Dylan Thomas, who spent the latter years of his life living in the Boathouse – now a museum – and writing in a nearby shed, now refurbished but still supported by stilts, facing Taf Estuary. The accompanying photograph I took from Dylan’s shed, and it is easy to appreciate why he approved of its location. There are some places on the planet I would have no hesitation in describing as magical, and this pocket of Carmarthenshire is one of them.
