About this spot
This is a relatively undiscovered gem in Carmarthenshire which features as footnotes in many guidebooks, but is actually one of the best photography locations in south Wales. A Neo-Gothic folly erected in honour of Lord Nelson in the early 1800s. It is situated on the top of a hill near Llanarthney with commanding views of the River Tywi valley.
