Boys on the balcony- Craig-y-nos castle

Craig-y-nos Castle - ( 1940s )  boys  on the balcony.

This iconic photo of boys on the balcony at Craig-y-nos in the 1940s has suddenly got a new lease of life- again!

Students from Stirling University Film and Media Department  are using it in their crowdsourcing campaign to raise money to make a documentary about a children’s TB sanatorium.

  • So far they have raised £780  of their £1,000 target

The students will be travelling down to  Craig-y-nos in the Swansea Vallaey  to film  in just over a week’s time, and I have suggested they wrap up warm because it will be cold.

A small group of patients have agreed to be interviewed.  And, of course, there is the small matter of the ghosts…particularly Adelina Patti.

Oh yes, I will be there too.
