You don’t have to go to Reykjavik to see the glorious potential of paint and corrugated iron. Maenclochog’s Siop y Sgwar glows at the centre of the village and invites you to stop, admire its bold presence and get closer to feast on its richness of colour. As I stood gawping at the front of the store, my manners returned and I went inside to buy something, anything really just to see the inside and to say hello to the keeper of this beacon of a shop. Next time I go on a winter’s evening I shall take my camera so that I can capture it illuminated against the dark sky.
With many thanks to fellow blogger, Calmgrove, who drew my attention to this example of a ‘tin’ building in the Preselis. It’s only about ten miles from Dinas and a mile from Tafarn Sinc at Rosebush – more of that next time.
