It was in an area called Mardy, Abergavenny. In the north part of Abergavenny, ironically on The Hereford Road, so at least we knew we were on the right track! But it wasn’t a lunch stop, just yet.
A pint of Brains please – can’t remember if I was on half pints, soft drinks or Shandies for the day, but probably had a shandy of Brains. And then a random photo moment. This picture of four men stood on the wall behind. We enjoyed the random poses so copied it.
Us. Doing the pose.
Them. The Original.
Dan captured me standing by the pub door. I like this photo. I was back.
After 2 pints for the lads and a shandy Brains for me, it was time to leave Abergavenny behind and head back into England, and get the craic for the night ahead in Hereford. Dan made a few photos on our drive through the town, which was old, charming and idyllic rather than bleak, commercial and modern. Here at Abergavenny Bargain Centre, you can buy “over sizes”.
Our first sign of “Hereford” for the day was also photographed by Dan, as we arrived on Hereford Road, where a surgery bore black and white colours to represent the Bulls.
It was a nice trip to Abergavenny and we enjoyed the town, but it was back across into England to see Hereford, where the main event would be later that night.
