Llangollen

IBBETSON, Julius Caesar (1759 - 1817)

Llangollen

Cyfrwng: olew ar gynfas

Maint: 35.5 x 52.0 cm

Derbyniwyd: 1953; Prynwyd

Rhif Derbynoli: NMW A 504

Saif Llangollen ar lannau Afon Ddyfrdwy gerllaw Abaty Glyn y Groes a chastell Dinas Brŷn. Er 1776 hwn oedd cartref y Fonesig Eleanor Butler a Miss Sarah Ponsonby, 'The Ladies of Llangollen'. Byddai llawer o dwristiaid yn ymweld â'u cartref. Mae Ibbetson yn dangos merched yn nyddu a throelli gwlân o flaen eglwys Sant Collen, golygfa nodweddiadol o fywyd gwledig mewn tref a ddisgrifiwyd gan Thomas Pennant fel hyn; 'Ni wn am unman arall yng ngogledd Cymru lle gall y sawl sy'n hoffi golygfeydd darluniadol, pobl sentimental neu'r ymwelydd rhamantaidd ymroi mwy i'w pleser'.

Hi there Ryan,

I would suggest contacting our Curatorial Library here at National Museum Cardiff, as they might have sources about Llangollen.

The Welsh Dictionary of Biography has an entry on Pennant which might give you a few leads.

Thanks for enquiry - hope you have a great visit to Llangollen!

I read this e-mail with great interest.

I've been asked to organise a day or one-night visit to Langollen from the base of the Thomas Pennant Society in Whitford, Flints.

I will need to research for info about any connections with Pennant so that I can surprise those in the society who think they know everything about both Llangollen and him!!

a) Can you suggest any avenues, and

b) can you suggest any organisations I should contact. I'm sure a note to the library and one to the Historical Society if it exists would be a start???????

Thank you in anticipation.
