Lougher from Penclawdd

MORRIS, Sir Cedric (1889 - 1982)

Lougher from Penclawdd

Cyfrwng: olew ar gynfas

Maint: 60 x 73 cm

Derbyniwyd: 2008; assistance from the Derek Williams Trust

Rhif Derbynoli: NMW A 29356

Mae cyrion lled-wledig Abertawe ym mlaendir y llun yma’n cyferbynnu’n llwyr â’r simneiau a mŵg y Gymru ddiwydiannol yn y cefndir. Darlun cyffredinol yw hwn o lannau Llanelli o Ben-clawdd ac a dweud y gwir, ni ellir gweld Casllwchwr, er gwaethaf ei deitl. Ganed Cedric Morris yn y Sgeti, Abertawe, a byddai wedi bod yn gyfarwydd iawn â thirwedd yr ardal.

Having grown up in Penclawdd, I would like to point out that the spelling in the title of the painting is correct whereas, Penclacwydd refers to the area across the estuary, near Loughor, where there is currently a Wildlife and Wetlands Centre. I spent many hours as a child and teenager playing on, and walking, the 'Graig' above the village, which is clearly the location from which Morris looks over towards the estuary in this painting. I regularly looked out of my bedroom window and saw the smoking chimneys he has painted as well as the towers of Burry Port Power Station. A poignant reminder of a happy childhood!

Could the 'Lougher' (sic) of the title refer to the river Loughor, the estuary of which is clearly present here, rather than the town of the same name which, as others have pointed out, is outside the scope of this work?

I saw this painting last week. We live in Llanelli and think that Lougher shown in the painting is Machynys.
Machynys was an industrial area. Lougher is further up the estuary. What a pity Cedris Morris is no longer around to confirm or deny.
