For Cro

Cro asked me to post a video of other parts of the village, so that he could get a mental picture of the place a little more. I made the mistake of trying to take a few clips this afternoon as I waited for the dog groomer to do her thing.
Forgive the poor quality film making, I was trying to hold an armful of flower show schedules, two dogs as well as trying to fend off 'French' comments ( why French?)  from affable despot Jason who caught me filming down Chapel street!

  2. I love the wall outside of Jason's house! Too bad you couldn't get him to speak some Welsh...our nine year old has been reading Llewelyn and we've been stumbling a bit over the pronunciations!

    Thank you for showing us your lovely village and it is nice hearing your voice. :)

  9. FABULOUS! Now go get that guest room ready John as I'm coming for an extended stay. In the meantime this US gal wants video of the inside of your abode as well. Would be nice if Cro and Tom would jump abord the video train and show us their whereabouts.

  10. The grey of those buildings is so typical of Welsh villages John, isn't it? Then suddenly we get it enlivened by a few lovely white houses. It looks such a nice place to live, I hope you don't have to up sticks and move.

    1. The trouble with grey is that the place looks so drab in winter

  11. Are all the buildings of the same type of stone?

  13. Thanks for the tour. What is that structure in the second video? It looks like a small silo and looks like it sits right up to that white building.

      It's looks a little like a tower turret

  15. Jason's got a very grand front door surround, it looks like it's from a castle!

  16. I loved the tour and hope for more! It does look like a beautiful place to live. Is there a "downtown"? A place where shops are gathered? I know you are a seller and trader of eggs, but what about other needs? Or do you go to a nearby town?

    Nancy in Iowa wants to know.....

    1. The shop has unfortunately closed nancy ( originally we had three) but we have a pub ( not shown) ...........

    2. Will we get to see the pub in your next film?

  17. BTW, I love the Ebenezer Chapel windows! And I was delighted to see Jason TAD in his window waving at us.

  19. Oh, John, what a treat! Thank you so much. I just love your village. I hope you will be inclined to show many more videos in the future -- especially when the gardens are in bloom!

  20. Interesting! Someone needs to deadhead those hydrangeas outside the Ebenezer Chapel, though!

  22. I really hope to visit England someday. We have a High St. too and it is the prettiest street in our town.

  23. Why would Longshanks need a turret in Trelanwyd....didn't think we got as far as Wales!Lovely village, not dissimilar to mine. Are those miners' houses at the junction of Chapel Street to the left of pic. That must be the Pit Manager's House that Jason lives in - very ostentatious.Have a good week, chum. x

    1. i believe it was the Ebenezer Chapel ministers house....and trelawnyd can be pretty hostile for an englishman !

    2. By 'we' I actually meant my tartan-wearing,caber-tossing,shield-weilding ancestors - I'm North of the Great Divide!

  24. That was great! As for Jason, his house has a lovely front door. I was a little bit worried that you might get run over when you came to the end of Chapel Street.

  25. I love those stone walls.

  26. Love the videos John !
    Reminds me of the little village where we lived, in the Wye Valley, a step back in time...

  27. Wow, Welsh is much easier to understand than I ever suspected! I just love learning about your corner of the world, and hearing your gentle voice. Though I suppose when wrangling hysterical ducks or inadvertantly bleaching your bum, it may take on a different timbre.

  28. I love it! Thank you for sharing! I love your village.

    Side note and totally off topic, Walking Dead came back last night here in the states. AWESOME!!!!!

  29. Thanks for that John. I like the area around the well, it looks older than some parts. The whole village looks very much as I remember many Welsh villages. Did Jason half-inch that door surround?

  30. Beauty in the ordinary...sometimes being behind a lens in your own locale reminds us of how lucky we are.

  31. You were robbed at the Baftas John !
