School House

This is the house that grannie lived in from the age of 3. Her father Thomas Owen was the headmaster at the village school from 1920-1951. The school is the building to the right of the house.

Grannie can remember arriving in Bryngelwys from Llanynys on the back of a traction engine with her parents, her brother Jack and their belongings. Remembering that she was only 3 at the time, she can vividly recall being lifted from the trailer by Dick Hughes, who lived in Ty’n Bedw, who carried her into the living area and put her to sit on a wicker chair.

Naturally seeing the house was the first stop we made in the village.
