Llandinam: A Glimpse of the Past
Having lived all my life in Llandinam, I felt a record should be made of the history of the village over the past two hundred years or so.
I hope the reader will be interested in the paintings and photographs I have gathered and my memories and those of others of a vanished way of life.
Llandinam: Meandering Byways & Pathways to the Past
After publishing my last book “A Glimpse of the Past” in 2002, I found that some matters of interest still remained to be written down. I also found that I had a number of my own & other peoples photographs which were worth putting on record.
“Meandering Byways & Pathways to the Past” is a means to gather together all this additional material and to present it in the form of some guided walks within the parish of Llandinam.
A History of Llandinam & Parish
Bennett Rowlands was a native of Llandinam, Born in 1836 at Pwllan Farm.
In 1915 Bennett published “A History of Newtown” but, due to ill health, never completed his “History of Llandinam”
His unfinished manuscript has been “Silently” edited by Jeremy Pryce & Susan Brachi, with the intention of easing the flow of the text without altering its meaning.
