On a recent holiday my wife and I stayed in Perth en route to Skye. About 20 miles to the West, off the Crieff road, lies the village of St. David's.
It is much more rural than the Pembs one, as my pictures show.

4 The rural character
5The road into the village.

My thanks to Mr. Webjanitor for his help with the pictures.

It is just possible that there is at least one other place called "St. David's" - and here is the proof.

There are two St.Davids listed in my road atlas of Britain,the other one in Tayside,about ten mile west of Perth,and a bit south,in Scotland.
I took my then girlfriend to Perth,back in 1969,when we got engaged,as we were both living near there then. What days!

May I be the last to congratulate you on your engagement ! For me 1969 was a mixed year - I nearly got engaged.

My pictures are of your Perthshire St Davids. The third St. D. is on the North shore of the Firth of Forth, where there was a shipbreaker's yard.

Thank you Crusty,sadly we split,around mid 1970. I have often wondered what happened to her,she was my first serious girlfriend,and is probably a 20Stone grandmother by now!

:lol:

I always wanted to get engaged to one of my early loves.

She was from an Irish family who used to come to west Wales for the potato picking season every year.

Dymphna Macauly was the wee lassie's name, her family used to stay in a caravan up by RAF Brawdy in 1971/2 Recalling warm summer days on Newgale beach still makes the blood rush!!! .......Halcyon days!!

Be safe! :wink:
