There are superb coastal views from the village across the estuary.
On this side is Llanrhidian March, which has a rugged, timeless nobility.
Channels meander across a vast mazy plane of marshland swathed in grass
and punctuated by strangely shaped puddles. Down by the marsh the smell
of salt is everywhere, and ponies graze at random.
About a mile to the west is Weobley Castle, a late 13th- or early 14th-century
fortified manor house built by the de la Bere family. By this stage
in the evolution of fortifications, the accent was increasingly on grandness
and comfort as much as security. It was badly damaged during the Owain
Glyndwr rebellion but recovered and eventually fell into the ownership
of the Crown and then of the Mansel family, who owned it until 1911.
It is now maintained by CADW and has been somewhat renovated and restored.
Standing gaunt against the backcloth of marsh and estuary, the castle
provides glorious views across to Burry Port and Llanelli, with glimpses
east towards the Black Mountains and west to the Preseli Mountains.
