Groundworks have started for the new Ysgol Bro Dinefwr at Ffairfach, the school which is to replace both the nearby Tregib and, 13 miles up the Tywi valley, Llandovery’s Pantycelyn. Ysgol Bro Dinefwr, which is reported to have grant aid of approximately £30 million from the Welsh Government, is controversial because of the long distances that former Pantycelyn pupils will have to travel, and because of its closeness to the river Tywi. The initial groundworks here have created a lakeland landscape.
