St David is the Patron Saint of Wales and on 1st March each year is the feast day of Saint David commemorating the anniversary of his death in 589 AD. St David’s is the smallest UK city with an estimated population of 1,800. Celebrations are not done by half and not just on one day but are usually spread over a two-week period!!
Our Dinefwr tapestry, one of the most popular Welsh tapestry blankets, is going back on the loom! Dinefwr castle has amazing views of the Tywi valley from its hilltop location. We last visited on a rainy overcast day in Autumn hence the greys for the stone and skies with a touch of nutmeg for the fallow deer! Orders are being taken please email.
If asked when the last invasion of Britain was, most people remember the Norman invasion of 1066. But that is simply not true… The last invasion of Britain was near the town of Fishguard in west Wales. On February 22nd, 1797, the French army of 1500 men came ashore but eventually surrendered to a group of local women armed with pitchforks!
