New heritage board for Lammas Street in Carmarthen
Carmarthen Town did not tumble down with Merlin’s Oak but the Heritage Board in Lammas Street has been looking decidedly the worst for wear.
After many years in circulation, the display located in Lammas Street had started to fall apart.
But there has been salvation with Carmarthenshire’s marketing and tourism team responding to the challenge of councillors Alun Lenny, Alan Speake, Peter Hughes-Griffiths and Jeff Thomas.
The existing frame was too decayed to be used and therefore it has been replaced with new text and design, including a reference to The Royal Welch Fusiliers monument in Lammas Street, which honours local servicemen killed during the Crimean War (1853-1856).
The Carmarthen Town Forum is set to discuss the renovation of other heritage panels located throughout the town centre.
County executive board member for regeneration, tourism and leisure services Cllr Meryl Gravell said: "These panels are so valuable help to make people more aware of the rich heritage around them and inspire pride in Carmarthenshire’s glorious history.”
