Troedyrhiw Fair – ‘An outstanding event in the village calendar’

Troedyrhiw Fair

Until Afon Taf school was built in the late 1960’s the annual May Fair had been an outstanding event in the calendar of the village. The memoirs of Claude Stanfield relate how ‘not only Troedyrhiw, but the whole population in the surrounding area, would look forward with eager anticipation to the visit of the fair on the first Monday in May.’

About davidjcollier

Originally from South Wales I have lived in Nottinghamshire for over forty years. I am married and have three grown up children and two grandchildren. Having worked in education for 43 years I will retire in July 2012. My interests include history (general, local and family), rugby union, swimming, photography, bird watching and gardening. For the benefit of anyone who may actually read this (extremely unlikely, I admit) please do not confuse 'interests' with knowledge or skill. My involvement in a community project which aims to rescue a graveyard from the effects of almost 30 years of neglect. also keeps me quite busy. View all posts by davidjcollier
