Voices from the Past

This forum is open to all of the villagers of Trelawnyd past and present


I would like for them to share their memories, old photographs, family histories and past Village news with me so that I may be able to present a comprehensive record of this small. ancient and facinating Welsh Village Community throughout the ages.


All photographs will be returned after being scanned and published

For those that want to read a comprehensive study on the History of Trelawnyd, please refer to the Book "TRELAWNYD PAST & PRESENT" by Daphne and Ken Davies

A rare photograph of the junction of Byron Street and London Road taken around a hundred and ten years ago...
Must have been a hot day in summer as all of the houses windows are open 

The Inauguration of the Memorial Hall


This photo is a significant find .
A rare shot of the opening of the memorial hall 110 years ago.
The corner of High Street of London Road and High Street looks rather impressive presumably with everyone waiting for the Ralli family to do the unveiling
Thanks to the Harry Thomas archives for allowing me to share this photo 

London Road


 Two photograps of London Road the first before the construction of the village hall


Trelawnyd Christmas 1994


I am sorry but I couldn't put the video itself on the blog but I will put the link after the text so that visitors can see it. Interesting to see the Hall before the rennovations and lovely to see so many faces of Trelawnyd past.
Please let me know who some of these old faces were, I can only recognise a few.
