Prince opens Llandovery station

Llandovery station in Carmarthenshire has been refurbished and smartened up by volunteers.

The station building, which was closed in 1992, was re-opened by HRH Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall.

Llandovery now boasts a new waiting room, café and a display of historic local artefacts.

A plaque was unveiled and the royal couple met members of the Heart of Wales Line Development Company and Friends of Llandovery Station, who will run the new facility.

“We’ve all learned a lot and our plans are to use this experience to spearhead more development work along the Heart of Wales Line,” says Gill Wright of the Heart of Wales Line Development Company.
