estuary of the River Tâf. It is known for having been the home of
Dylan Thomas from 1949 until his death in 1953, and is thought to

Township was originally known as Abercorran, but this was changed to
Laugharne after the Civil War, in honour of Major-GeneralRowland

Parliamentarian army, before rebelling in 1648.

Henry I when their country was flooded, and later they were joined
by Flemish soldiers banished by Henry II. They were weavers and
dyers and were such an influence that Welsh was hardly ever heard in
