Village history

I love a good story and you’ll find some in here!

This includes stories about “The Glascoed Riots”, church histories and records (some great stories of people’s lives in there, even if you are not a Christian - see for example, Glyndwr Williams’ Mount Zion Chapel history - one of the finest sources of oral history and interesting stories you’ll find on Glascoed!), Law and Order, the School, the upheaval that the construction of the Reservoir brought. Did you know that there’s an ancient site of Scientific Interest in the village - if not, then read about Cwm Ton Site of Specal Scientific Interest!

I intend to create something more visually appealing here in due course, but for now some functional buttons will get you through to the relevant Village History sub-section.
