Carmarthen lays claim to being the oldest town in Wales but the two settlements of Old and New Carmarthen were only united into a single borough in 1546.
Picton's Munument, erected in 1828, stood at the west end of the town and was erected in memory of Sir Thomas Picton, who died in the Battle of Waterloo. It was about 75 feet high and was intended to echo Trajan's column in Rome. The pillar stands on a square pedestal, with a small door on the east side, which fronts the town, where the monument was ascended by a flight of steps
