Yesterday the weather was quite poor but this morning, at least, it was glorious, and Aberystwyth clearly comports itself very well in such conditions. There are only about 23,000 people here (even when it has its full deployment of students) but it is still the biggest town for about a hundred miles in any direction. Yet this morning in the sun it felt quiet and peaceful and looked very beautiful. Maybe it’s not the same on an August holiday weekend — but I do not know the place well enough to tell for sure.
