Llanrhaeadr trip

I’ve had a lovely, relaxing 4 days away in the delightful village of Llanrhaeadr, just inside the Welsh border. This visit was primarily to attend my Aunt Isobel’s funeral, but I was overdue for and ready to come anyway.

This is my lovely Aunty May who I am always happy to spend so much time talking to, about family and things.

She used to make jars of marmalade and jam but now seems to concentrate on pickles!

There’s not much in the way of street lighting in the village, which makes for a slightly creepy but pleasurable night stroll to the pub. The smell of the smoke from the house fires adds to the atmosphere.

ME!

Getting to Llanrhaeadr-ym-Mochnant

On the spur of the moment I decided to visit my aunt. She lives in the tiny village of Llanrhaeadr-ym-Mochnant in Mid/North Wales, where there is only one bus per day in each direction.

I needed to plan the connections with great care if I was to catch the sole bus into the village at 1:30

It’s a lovely little village with half a dozen shops and three pubs, and is famous for its waterfall, Pistyll Rhaeadr.

I had a lovely time with my aunt as well as seeing two of my many cousins. And all of the transport connections worked out perfectly!
