Welsh Village Scene in the 1960s (Cwmbach near Builth Road)

The Inspiration:

Freehand and painted in oils


From my fathers black and white photographs

A view from my Grandmothers house in a village called Cwmbach, near Builth Wells, Powys, Wales during the 1960s.

In the distance we see 8F Stanier 2-8-0 freight train crossing the bridge over the A470 trunk road heading towards Builth Road from Llandrindod Wells on the Heart of Wales Line (formerly Central Wales Line)
