Llanfairpwllgwyngyll c1970s

 

 

 

 

 

A group of Sheraton Comprehensive students visit that well known but nearly unpronounceable Welsh railway station Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch during a field expedition in the 1970s.

These trips were organised by the then geography teacher Brian Storey, he also took the photograph. These students will now be nearing their 60th birthday.

  1. It isn’t unpronounceable once you learn how to say it, which I did around the mid-fifties when I went to North Wales camping with the Scouts every Whit week holiday for five years. We stayed near Penmaenmawr at a place called Dwygyfylchi (pronounced ‘dwiggyvulky’).
