Craig-y-nos Castle- major source of employment

Talking to Ann Lewis from Pen-y-cae this morning confirmed yet again how the lives of this close-knit community at the top of the Swansea Valley were linked with that of the castle.

It provided employment for people from one generation to the next.

Ann' grandfather was a boilerman man, her father the chauffeur, her uncle Edgar Davies the head gardener and her husband Ken worked there as a stoker/boilerman.

Did she ever hear tell of any ghostly happenings in the castle?
"No, never."
