Under Milk Wood inspired by Mousehole?

Hear the mesmeric voice of Richard Burton's original broadcast on radio.

"It is spring, moonless night in the small town, starless and bible-black, the cobbledstreets silent and the hunched courters'-and-rabbits' wood limping invisible down to the sloeblack, slow, black, crowblack, fishingboat-bobbing sea."

Was Mousehole the inspiration for much of Dylan Thomas' epic radio play, Under Milk Wood?
