St David's 2012: Part 1

Lych gate at St Mary's, Roch
Up early this morning and off to St Mary's church, Roch, to meet up with the East Wickham Singers for a rehearsal for tomorrow's choral eucharist. An interesting church with a few wall plaques of note. I was particularly struck by one commemorating two brothers killed in WW1. One of them already had a Military Medal and a recommendation for a VC pending at the time he went 'over the top' leading his brigade.

In the afternoon we went for a walk near the Treffgarne Gorge. We had intended to do a circular route but this was spoilt by some undecipherable footpath diversion signs. Nonetheless we had a good 4 mile stroll with some fantastic panoramic views of coast and mountains. In the distance we could make out the Preseli Hills. Strange to think that some of the monoliths used to build Stonehenge came from there. It's a long drag to Wiltshire. But not to the tea room at Nant-y-Coy Mill where we repaired for light refreshments. Simple things done extremely well and a place definately worthy of a return visit.
