Here are our custodians' suggestions of things to look at and listen to when using Pyka_Lens App at sites...

Specific areas of visual interest (e.g. landmarks, interesting textures, areas of the site that are usually missed/overlooked/not the main attraction)

Take time to sit and enjoy the beautiful views of the Taf estuary from the gazebo where both Richard Hughes and Dylan Thomas were inspired to write. Switch on the baker light radio and listen to Dylan and Richard having a brief conversion!

Enjoy a picnic in the grounds of the restored grade 2 listed gardens, sit in the shade of the trees on site, some of which are over 300 years old. Enjoy the birdsong, peace and quiet, during the summer while watching the busy bees visiting the abundance of plant blossom  even in the rain!

Specific environmental interest (e.g. surrounding scenery, landscape, seasonal wildlife)

Pick up a free Laugharne Heritage Walk leaflet and enjoy a walk around Laugharne passing through the places of historic interest in the township which include the home, writing shed, Brown’s hotel and the grave of Dylan Thomas.

Follow the birthday walk to discover where Dylan Thomas took inspiration to write Poem in October to mark his 30th birthday in 1944. 

Specific areas of sonic interest (e.g. naturally occurring sounds, sounds from installations at the site, areas with interesting echoes or reverberation)

The Taf estuary is an area of conservation where you observe waders and sea birds. Free parking is available, but take care not to park during high tide as this covers the car park! Warning signs are displayed in the car park.
