Mynydd Preseli hills and Waldo Williams., taken 7 years ago
The famous hills from whence came the bluestones of Stonehenge, pictured with the memorial monolith to poet Waldo Williams, 1904-1971. Married Linda Llewellyn in 1941 who sadly died just two years later. In 1950 he protested against the Korean war by refusing to pay income tax, a protest he maintained long after the war, ceasing only upon the ending of National Service. During this time he served two terms of inprisonment for non payment of income tax. He died in hospital at Haverfordwest and is buried at Llandysilio, Pembrokeshire.
In the middle distance, being admired by two people, is one of two standing stones brought down from the hills above in April 1989. the other being transported in the same manner as were the original bluestones to Wiltshire
