Hanes Llangollen History

Hanes-Llangollen-History was a small local history society based in Llangollen.

They met four times a year for talks and outside visits and undertook projects of an educational or restoration nature.

Previous projects have been the restoration of the monument to Mary Carryl and the Ladies of Llangollen in the St Collen's churchyard

and the publication of research into the roses grown by the Ladies.

Some Account of the Roses in the Garden at Plas Newydd (£3.50). 

A bilingual book, Remembering the Bards / Cofio'r Beirdd (£4.95)

on the local poets and chaired bards, Jonathan Hughes, Taliesin o Eifion and Gwilym Ceiriog was published in 2012.

 

Another project was the publication of an extended and revised edition of Diary of a Dairy Maid (£5.99),

based on the diaries and letters of the Ladies of Llangollen, and previously published to raise funds for the restoration of the monument.

These books are available at Courtyard Books in town, Plas Newydd from Easter to the end of September.

In 2104 they donated roses and clove pinks for the garden at Plas Newydd and produced a free guide to the garden for visitors.

 

In 2016, the society decided to merge with the Llangollen Museum
