Magnificent St David’s Cathedral (1311-1910 – over this period the original was frequently rebuilt or restored)
Immediately to the west of the cathedral is the Bishop’s Palace (14th century), lacking tons of lead roofing removed by Oliver Cromwell’s forces (17th C) as they pursued the concept of a Commonwealth of England. [Now we know better].
For today’s Welsh lessons
(i) work it out (ii) means The stone of the Cross
WELL PLAYED WALES!! Today we shall share loud cheers with all we come across, in recognition of the magnificent win against Belgium last night. Please do not think that our enthusiasm will have ulterior motives such as hope for a free drink or 50% off the price of carrot cake. Yesterday on the way to St David's we battled heavy rain and a strong westerly wind, buoyed by the knowledge that the wind would blow us all the way back in the afternoon, as indeed it did - with the bonus of almost continuous sunshine, unpredicted by the BBC. Hope they're wrong today too.
