Dylan Thomas in Talsarn

Now as I was young and easy under the apple boughs
About the lilting house and happy as the grass was green

In August 1941 Caitlin moved to Plas Gelli at Talsarn in Cardiganshire with Vera Phillips (later Killick), her sister and mother.

Dylan, working for the BBC and on film documentaries in London, joined them later. Their daughter, Areonwy, was born in March 1942, and named after river Aeron, which ran into the sea nearby.

Here he wrote a documentary about Wales, Green Mountain, Black Mountain for the British Council in the summer of 1942 and spent time at the Castle Hotel, Lampeter.
