4000 Years and Counting

The Yew tree in the churchyard at Llangernyw is possibly 4000 years old. The churchyard also contains the graves of some family members from the family tree of my wife.

They used to be tenant farmers locally, at the start of the 20th century.

We still have the old kitchen table from their farmhouse and the old family story is, that at some point they lost the farm and did a midnight move with all their possessions that they could carry, roped into the upturned table that was sitting on a cart.
