Project Description

Dylan Thomas Birthday Walk, Laugharne

  • Date:

    A self led walk to do on or around Dylan Day

  • Start in the Laugharne harbour car park.

  • In 1944, Dylan wrote ‘Poem in October’ about his birthday walk, to the shoulder of Sir John’s hill. The poem is simply about his love of Laugharne and getting older. The poem was set on the 27th of October, 1944; his 30th Birthday. The estuary sounds and the memory of the herons awaiting the tide were on his mind.

    Set forth now and walk in Dylan’s footsteps.

    The walk is approximately 2 miles/3.2 kilometres in length and will take you uphill. Enjoy the magnificent views of the estuary, Dylan’s boathouse, the Gower, north Devon, Caldey Island and Tenby.
