My Welsh Waterstones Tour: Stop 6 - Abergavenny
all of which require copious amounts of rain of course, hence the footwear of choice is the wellie.
I also spied a castle, tucked behind the street on the edge of an escarpment
with a 12th century entrance
and slitted windows in the younger (14th century) part
and grander ones for what was a hall and the bedchambers, and the usual tales of heinous deeds necessary to keep down the rebellious Welsh.
I always come across the Waterstones shop unexpectedly
with the poster advertising my event in the window
and another (extremely kind) one inside with my books,
and I enjoyed myself talking, and talking and talking - to the staff and the customers - until it was time to go home.
