Talog

Aeth Jacob a minnau ar daith o amgylch Sir Gaerfyrddin ddoe i edrych ar leoliadau ar gyfer y ffilmiau Cragen Beca rydym yn eu creu yn rhan o’r prosiect.

Treuliom dipyn o amser yn Nhalog yn cael golwg ar y pentref a rhai o’r mannau pwysig sy’n gysylltiedig â stori Cragen Beca. Gwnaethom gwrdd â Myrddin ym mynwent Capel Bethania a oedd yn cadw’r beddau a’r tir yn gymen. Cyflwynodd ef ni i bâr hyfryd o beunod a oedd yn treulio ychydig o amser yn ei gwmni ymysg y cerrig beddi. Mae Myrddin yn 80 mlwydd oed ac mae wedi byw yn Nhalog ar hyd ei oes. Adroddodd yr hanes am yr adeg y cafodd ei fedyddio ym mhwll y pentref pan oedd yn ei arddegau. Dywedodd wrthym hefyd am enwau rhai o’r ffermydd y gallem eu gweld ar hyd y bryniau.

Hefyd bu inni gwrdd â pherchnogion yr adeilad sydd bellach yn sefyll ar safle hen Felin Talog lle roedd John Harries, a oedd â rhan allweddol yn stori Merched Beca yng Nghaerfyrddin, yn arfer byw.


Jacob and I went on a road trip around the Carmarthenshire yesterday to look at locations for the Cragen Beca films we are making as part of the project.

We spend a while in Talog looking at the village and some of the important places that are connected to the Cragen Beca story. We met Myrddin in the graveyard of Bethania Chapel who was keeping the graves and the grounds in good order. He introduced us to a beautiful pair of peacocks who were spending some time in his company amongst the gravestones. Myrddin is 80 years old and has lived in Talog all his life, he recounted his baptism in the village pool when he was a teenager. He also told us the names of the farms we could see ranged across the hillside.

I was also delighted to chat to Neil and Sally, the owners of the building which now stands on the site of the old Talog Mill where Rebeccaite John Harries, a key player in the story of the Carmarthen Rebecca story, lived.
