I have been holidaying in Borth y Gest for several years and my mother before me. We have just been very lucky to buy a house on Ralph St called Gowerian. I understand that the house was named after a ship that apparently sank. Does anyone have my information about this ship or indeed the house itself.....maybe a captain resided there ? Would love a picture of the “Gowerian”and any information Thank you

Hello I am researching my family tree and have close ties and very fond memories of Borth y gest. My grandmother lived at Terfyn in Mersey Street for many years along with my mother aunt and uncle's. My mother grew up at a house called Llety behind borth woods from 1936 till they moved to Terfyn. Would anybody have a photo of Llety they could post up please...... Thank you in advance Jayne
