Over 50 years ago, in 1963, an 82 year old retired Anglican minister, David Williams, published a book, entitled Y Wladfa Fach Fynyddig which he had written. At the time it was well received in the Llanfair Clydogau and Llanddewi Brefi areas of Cardiganshire, the area it describes. The publication sold out and copies have been difficult to get since then. Now, local historians Alan and Sally Leech have revised and reprinted the book, with the support of the author’s daughter. The book of 79 pages, including a large number of black and white photographs, recounts the life of people living in a remote area of the Cambrian Mountains at the end of the nineteenth and beginning of the twentieth centuries, through the memories of the author.
Alan and Sally Leech have arranged for a limited edition reprint of the book of 110 copies. It is available for £5 from Llanfair Shop or direct from the authors.
