IS SARON GRAVEYARD WORTH PROTECTING?

Only three buildings in Troedyrhiw enjoy the protection provided by having ‘listed’ status. These are:-
Troedyrhiw War Memorial which is listed for being ‘A sculptural war memorial of special historical interest.’
St John’s Church which is listed as ‘An accomplished early work of Welsh architect John Prichard already with a High Victorian severity of line.’
A corbelled pigsty at Penddeugae Fach Farm which is listed as ‘A rare survivor of a highly unusual and distinctive Welsh vernacular building.’


As an important and sensitive part of the historic fabric of our village isn’t Saron Graveyard equally worthy of protection?

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
