Photographic study of Myddfai

by Claire Meredith

 Myddfai is a village near Llandovery (Llanymddyfri in Welsh), in Carmarthenshire. It is nestled  in dramatic scenery, between rolling hills, winding lanes and farming landscapes populated by livestock, and framed by lush trees. Famed as the base of the celebrated 'Physicians of Myddfai', mentioned in thirteenth century Red Book of Herges (which also contained the Mabinogion), their dynasty lasted over 500 years. No surprise then, that the area has an evocative, otherwordly and mystical feel.

Cymru Culture recently visited this beautiful area, giving us the opportunity to make a photographic study of this lovely and evocative part of Carmarthenshire.
