Scope and Content
Administrative / Biographical History
The Drovers Arms was a popular place of lodging amongst the ministers who were invited to preach at the chapels in Heol Awst and Union Street, in Caerfyrddin (Carmarthen). Their bills were settled by the deacon, W.G. Thomas.
The tavern was also the most popular amongst the ministers who were attending annual meetings etc. Evidently, not all preachers were teetotallers.
