Tyddyn Du & Trwyn Yr Wylfa Farm Walk

On Saturday we had a fascinating walk taking in two old Penmaenmawr farms that have diversified into caravan and camping sites; Tyddyn Du & Trwyn yr Wylfa.

Ron Watson-Jones gave us a guided tour of his ancestral home, Tyddyn Du farm, illuminating its farming history and its caravan touring park present.

Ron then had to transform from History Ron into Rockin’ Ron to perform at Noddfa’s summer fete. Dennis Roberts took over and lead us around the nearby Trwyn Yr Wylfa farm and told us about its history and we heard about the old gorse mill in its grounds and the mysteriously named ruin, Bryn Pinc.

Thanks very much to Pam Watson-Jones for allowing us into the grounds of Tyddyn Du, to the brilliant Dennis and Ron, to Sionyn for the photos and to everyone who came along despite the drizzle!
