Walking in the footsteps of Carys – a visit to Tregaron

Our fictional characters become so much a part of us, and are so clear and vivid in our minds, that when Mirren passed through Tregaron on her way to Aberaeron recently, she found herself looking for the old Vicarage where Carys from Eight of Cups was brought up.

She enjoyed Welsh cakes and mature Welsh cheddar in the low-ceilinged bar of the hotel.
