Legends and Folklore of Bridgend and The Vale is a compendium of twenty-six amazing stories based on myths, legends, superstitions, customs, ghost stories and tales of the supernatural originating from the counties of Bridgend and The Vale of Glamorgan on the South Wales coast (UK)...
There are so many amazing stories associated with these ancient pubs in Wales. Some of them true, some of them exaggerated and some of them just plain mad. And in this book I have captured over 86 of them from all over Wales.
Like the pub which claims to have an elephant buried under its beer garden, the pub where funeral parties take a short cut through the bar to keep an ancient right of access alive, the pub haunted by a randy ghost, the pub with a Roman bath in the cellar, the pub that invented pancake day and many, many more. Is there any truth in them? This book captures them all and puts them in the context of the history of their area and time so you can be the judge. And what about the age-old question of which is the oldest pub in Wales? We have eight different establishments all claiming it’s them, so which one is right?
A history of Wales as viewed from the bar.
See your favourite pubs in all their glory.
