St Michael's Llanfihangel Abercywyn

The watercolour above is of a lovely little church outside St Clears. Yesterday we went to the Gate in St Clears to finalise arrangements for the exhibition starting on the 19th July. Although quite a small town, it does have some history. The Normans built a castle there which had I believe the largest motte in Britain. A motte is the raised earth work bit! Ships came up the river to a small port below the castle and there was some boat building.
Nelson stopped at the Blue Boar in St Clears with his good friend Emma Hamilton and her husband in 1802. The town saw action in the Rebbeca Riots.
Today I spent the morning sorting out a puncture in our daughters car. Many modern cars like this one don't have a spare or a car jack. Is it me?
