In 2004, with more and more Wrekin Writers retreating, we headed south, for a change, to the Upper Swansea Valley, for a property at the end of a two-mile single-track lane …
Welcome to the Upper Swansea Valley!
Thankfully, it had lots of accommodation.
And plenty of room for writers to abandon their cars …
Er … this is writers queuing up for their dinner.
There were no other houses for miles around.
This was home for a long weekend.
Some found writing a little more tiring than they thought.
Writers eating … again
Writers …er … escaping.
Oh … they came back, because they left their muddy boots outside.
“And I wrote … this many words today!”
Evidence that there is an intention to write.
Ah! Writers … eating … again.
One of the bedrooms
And there’s some more eating …
It looks quite healthy food, doesn’t it?
The lounge with, what was to become a retreat tradition – the log fire.
The log fire … alight.
The lounge …
More eating …
More queuing up for food.
Writers … writing!
Writers congregating in the kitchen … it happens!
