One of our stops was Dolgellau, in North Wales. Here, Welsh is still spoken by the locals and traditions that are centuries old are an integral part of everyday life. Built entirely of stone, this is the only town near Hafod-Dywyll, the farmhouse where Connie's ancestors lived during the early 1800s. Dolgellau was their parish, their marketplace, their connection to the outside world. This is Lombard Street, which is the very road that leads from Queen's Square, in the heart of Dolgellau, to Hafod-Dywyll.
