'Gateway to Wales, Or Another Ghost Town?' is the sign we saw on a number of shop windows. If you want to read know more about this, see here.
Abergavenny is about 20 miles from the English border and attracts tourists due to its closeness to the Brecon Beacons National Park.
We decided to check out the Abergavenny Market Hall that was hosting its weekly 'Flea Market'. On other days it has farmers markets, antique and crafts fairs and so forth. A definite invitation to return again.
Like any tourist, I have a tendency to look up - not architecture in this case.
You can see how busy the market is in the picture below. It seems really popular.
Since 1999, Abergavenny has been hosting an annual Food Festival. It has grown and become most successful over the years. This years Abergavenny Food Festival will take place mid-September. Of course, I'd love to go. I will have to wait closer to the time to see what commitments I have.
After wandering the High Street and ducking in and diving out of charity and thrift shops, we walked on over to the towns Medieval stone castle.
This is just a glimpse of Abergavenny - I do hope to return there again. Perhaps alone, perhaps with family, perhaps with friends, but return I shall attracted especially by the Market Hall.
Look as I sign off for the day, I tease you with a distant glimpse of me eating a bag of crisps. That is really me, always nibbling.
