Maes-y-mynydd (4)
Looking northeast along the line of ruined dwellings that comprised The Street of Maes-y-mynydd, towards the row of houses at the top. It's said that the people who chose to live here on the edge of the land were seeking religious freedom - perhaps as Quakers - and hoped to find it by emigrating. The settlement was named Pennsylvania on the OS map of 1820 and the road leading from the village was known as The Road to America - whether any of them ever made it there has not established. Around the turn of the C20 only a handful of old people remained here.
