National Library of Wales

Today we visited the National Library off Wales that sits prominently on a hillside above the seaside town of Aberystwyth. A presentation by Cyril who told us that the Germans did not bomb the building during the second World War that was full of innumerable important documents, including the Magna Carta paperwork. They used the prominent building for a navigational aid as they flew the sorties over the United Kingdom flying up Cardigan Bay to Liverpool and the North. We were able to visit the exhibition of ancient texts pertaining to King Arthur with some of the manuscripts being from the 13th century. Tonight we are surrounded by the moonlight sea in the walled city of Tenby in Pembrokeshire. Images by Blake Darst, Wenonah Creates
