The Laques is the area of Laugharne below the tall trees in the distance visible from this room’s window. No-one is really sure how The Laques got its unusual name, but the stream that runs through the area is called Mackerel Lake where pedestrians once crossed using stepping stones. A stream called a lake? Laugharne is full of such quirks! From the window you can see woodland, and the rear of a house called Bay View which is said to be haunted by an old sea captain.
