A small project but an important one


Saron Graveyard, Troedyrhiw may not be in the same category as the big well-known heritage sites in Wales but it is never-the-less an important historic and cultural asset which deserves to be cherished.
As John Griffiths AM said when he was Minister for Culture and Sport ‘Unless local people appreciate and take ownership of the historic buildings and monuments on their doorstep, then how can we expect others in the wider world to be interested in what we in Wales have to offer?’ This is exactly what Friends of Saron have been doing but this project has now reached a point at which it desperately needs an injection of financial and other forms of support. Ideas, advice and guidance will be gratefully received.


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
