Farm house Church Bay summer 1957

by Peter Bell
(Liverpool)

Hi Wil


I spent two weeks in a farm cottage in Church Bay. The owner was Tom Williams he ran the farm with his sister.

He had an old Fordson tractor and two cows. The hen pen was an old single decker bus. We had two weeks of good weather.

I've been back there once or twice sadly Tom and his sister are now deceased and the farm and the land have been sold off.

Dear Peter,

Thanks for taking the time to write and to share your memories.

Seems that Church Bay clearly had a halcyon period. Actually, Summer was longer and better; Global Warming seems to be proving that.

As I wrote previously, if you knew Wally from that period, he is still a very active fine looking gentleman in his eighties. I frequently see him cycling into Holyhead from the Rhydwyn area.

Best wishes

Wil

Tom and Cassie
by: Sheila

We knew 'Auntie' Cassie and 'Uncle' Tom well and we used to stay at Plas Madyn at the top of the lane to Merddyn.

We could well have been there at the same time that year. We sometimes helped with the haymaking and Tom let us sit in front of him and steer the tractor as he drove it very very slowly.
