Wales Heritage Group’s photo competition at the Royal Welsh Show 2015

Last week the Wales Heritage Group took a table in the Ty Mawr Lime stand at the Royal Welsh Show (below: Lucie from The Ancient Monuments Society in front of the WHG table last week)


Throughout the Royal Welsh we ran a (very difficult!) photo competition, where people had to guess the places in the photos. Can you name the places in the below photos (answers are below!)?
