Description

This is the first in a series of gigapans that I took while partaking in that most British of activities: camping in the rain.

Carew (tinyurl.com/lv7dtg Will open in a new tab or window) is an ancient defensive site. This gigapan shows the interior of an extension made to the castle in Elizabethan times. The castle is situated next to what looks like a moat or lake but is in fact a tidal mill pond.

You can see the nearby and weird Stackpole Quay here tinyurl.com/mbqhav Will open in a new tab or window, a view of the castle from the mill here tinyurl.com/ngy7mg Will open in a new tab or window and a list of all my Pembroke gigapans here tinyurl.com/lp9gqk Will open in a new tab or window.

    Tish and pish! Better to form one's own opinions than to unthinkingly absorb the propaganda put forward by so-called 'historians' and their guesses and inventions. Ner ner!

    A fine idea my friend, but one must guard against the possible result that in appreciating a site without preconceptions, as you put it, one remains ultimately ignorant of it. Yah boo sucks.

    That's just the sort of thing. It was a guide to the castell that had been laminated. It looked like a place mat you'd use to protect your dining table to protect it from a hot plate. I scorn such things, much preferring to appreciate the site without preconceptions.

    If I may be allowed to interject a comment here, for those that do not know what a plastic-covered pretty picture thingy is, please see this GigaPan snapshot as a visual explanation: www.gigapan.org/viewGigapan.php?id= 11099&snapshot_id=90040

    Oh you mean that plastic-covered pretty picture thingy? I thought that was for eating your sandwiches off.

    I read the information sheet handed out to visitors like a good boy, while you, my impetuous friend, eschewed it.

    If the two of you can't resolve your arguments as English gentlemen, then the next time you travel, I will need to go too... to make sure that the facts are somewhat correct and that the exposures are perfect :)

    What is your evidence for this assertion? a) Knowledge of architecture. b) Wikipedia? Please cite url(s). c) You actually paid attention and read the information boards when we were there.

    I think you'll find those fine Tudor windows have been cut into much older walls actually rather then this being an extension.

    I think it is quite a popular place in fact because it is near Pembroke which has a fine castle and Tenby which is a bucket-and-spade sort of seaside resort. 'Dim Ysmygu' is indeed language! It is Welsh for 'No Smoking'. You can actually prounounce 'ysmygu' - say 'uh-smuggie'. 'Castell' is rather more obviously Welsh for 'Castle' and not a typo. Why does 'no smoking' feature in the title? Because smoking is not allowed in the castle! Ridiculous imo. Which is why I took the gigapan of this hall (out of sight of the wardens :-)

    This place must really be off the beaten path of UK tourism... I have never heard of it. What is this thing or place called ‘Ysmygu’? Is it a language or lost language or place of meditation? What is 'Dim'? The only dim I know is either dim the light or a Chinese delicacy, dim sum.
