The Dylan Thomas Trail; his Grave
Some visitors have searched for the grave of Dylan Thomas in the chapel graveyard near to Dylan's Walk. It seems logical as this is the closest to the Boathouse.
Dylan is burried in Laugharne Church off Church Street, the road which leads out of Laugharne towards St Clears. From the car park, climb the steps and go across the bridge to the new graveyard (those around the church are much, much older). Once there, look uphill into the middle of the graves and there is a simple white wooden cross. On that side is carved Caitlin Thomas, his wife, and you have to go above it to read his inscription.
Laugharne Castle dates from the 12th century though much of the original castle was destroyed a couple of centuries later and replaced by Tudor style buildings. The castle lies very close to the centre of town, just off the main street.
The Writing shed
On your way to the Boat house you must have a peek in the writing shed. This is where Dylan Thomas found much of his inspiration for his poems. The interior is furnished just as it would have been in the 1950's in fact it looks like Dylan has just popped out for a pint!! incidentally rumour has it that Dylan liked to write here as it was just a hop skip and a jump down the lane to the Browns Hotel for a quick one.
