The next event at Gosen will be a concert of Violin, Piano and Organ at 4.00pm on Saturday 17th August (Poster attached). We are fortunate to get the services of two eminent musicians making their first appearance at the restored chapel. The concert will be around 40 minutes duration – taking into account the less than commodious pews…. and there will be tea and time for a chat in the vestry afterwards

A visitor from Australia seeking her roots

Visiting Blaenau Tywi from Parramata, New South Wales, Australia is Jan Roe and her cousin Vicki.  Jan’s grandparents were buried in Seion Chapel, Rhandirmwyn.

Jan also visited Troedrhiwfer, Tynyddol, Whitehall Isaf, Penybont, Broncwrt Cottage and Maescaerhyg where her ancestors used to live, most of the time employed as miners in the Nantymwyn Lead Mines.  The families were the Lloyd’s of Maesllwynfuddai and the Thomas family from Penybont.

A special thanks to the Stone family in Troedrhiwfer for the warm welcome.
