Farm land reclaimed from the Clegyr
Farm land reclaimed from the Clegyr
These fields began as encroachments on to the Clegyr common in the early 19thC. Once the quarrymen-farmers had begun to tame the landscape, the Faenol estate grabbed the land by means of a private Enclosure Act. This led to rioting in the Deiniolen area quelled by troops brought in by the large landowners under their power as magistrates.
