known to explorers by its nick name! Adwy Deg; the fair retreat
Life was hard for Welsh hill farmers; the nearest road to this property is a mile away; The date of the turnpike road newly-constructed between 1777 and 1823 supports the suggestion that the settlement of this central area is principally late 18th century/early 19th century in date. Most of the farmsteads appear to date from this period, almost all of which lie to the west of (and below) the main road, boarded up with sadly time and thieves taking their toll not much left to see; but it was a great experience to spend an hour living in another's footprint on this earth; t seems the last occupant was a Miss Elizabeth Williams First entered into OS it seems between 1898-1908
The Certificate translated basically is for an exam achievement at Methodist ( Calvanist) Sunday School issued to Cadwaladr Williams class 2; 21st March 1902
For those not old enough to remember proper money; the 1960 receipt from the co-op approx equates to
30 players ciggies: 30p
matches: 1p
biro: 5p
1 oz golden virginia: 23p
3 gallons of petrol: 70p
Happy Days !!!!!!!
