Dylan’s Birthday Walk
In 1944, Dylan Thomas wrote ‘Poem in October’ about his birthday walk, to the shoulder of Sir John’s hill. The poem is simply about his love of Laugharne and getting older. The poem was set on the 27th of October, 1944; his 30th Birthday. The estuary sounds and the memory of the herons awaiting the tide were on his mind. The creator of the walk, local councilor Bob Stevens, suggests you visit Laugharne and make the walk on your birthday.
