The Queens in Bryndu

by Ray

Da iawn.


Diolch Wil, Sut mae?

The Queens must have been where my old man took me for a haircut. I'm sure the barber/butcher used to cut our hair in the bar.

How times change!

Can anyone verify this?

Hwyl

Ray.

The Queen's Bryndu
by: Ray (Swansea)

Sut Mae Wil,

Haven't looked at this blog for a good long while. I went on line and saw a picture of the boarded up Queens. I also saw the refurbished windmill. I used to play in the bottom of it until someone told me the devil lived below.

I think there was a livestock mart further down the road. I remember asking my mam for sixpence to buy a lamb.

We lived in a short untarmacced side road opposite The Queen's with houses on one side facing Rhosneigeir. Opposite was a farm with pigs. I still remember the farmer's wife banging on probably a dustbin lid at feeding time and shouting "pigooie".

I went to Pencairnisiog school from 1957 1960. Anyone there at that time?

The Queen's Head at Bryndu, Llanfaelog
by: Wil at Anglesey Hidden Gem

Dear Ray

I went to Bryndu this morning to get a picture of the Queen's Head for you.

I wish I hadn't, really. It was cold, grey with raucous crows wheeling ominously overhead and it was cold.

Not the Bryndu that you remember. Although the big BRYNDU chapel is still there dominating the hill.

The old windmill you may remember has now been transformed quite tastefully into a 'Grand Design' holiday home.

Never visit anywhere you remember from childhood on a cold gray morning.

The bad news?

The old Queens Head is no more.

Keep the warmth, noise and vibrancy of your memories close to you when you think of this small hamlet.

Wil
