Gwalchmai


(Gwalchmai)

I have vague memories of my grandfather, Richard Evans (son of Evan Evans / Ifan Ifas) of Gwalchmai, telling stories of how tramps would frequent the farm (Pen y Bryn Uchaf).


The only name I remember was "Washi Bach", he seemed to have a special place in their hearts .... but the children, being children, were a little less kind, and were prone to play tricks on him.

This is all I remember from my grandfather. Being a youngster, I paid little notice to the stories ... something I now regret.

I will ask around the older generation of my family (who were children at the time), they may have some stories.

Gwr o Walchmai a Washi Bach
by: William

Thank you for writing to Anglesey Hidden Gem about Washi Bach. I am pleased to have given you cause to remember - and, like the rest of us, to experience a twinge of regret at not listening for stories we'll never now know.

Do you have any more stories about Gwalchmai? My great grandparents lived in Cefn Frost and then moved to Glanrhyd in Llynfaes. Six lived in what is still just a little house at Cefn Frost. Washi was a regular visitor at Glandrhyd.

Anyway, please pop by again with some tales to share.

Best wishes from not all that far away.
