There were at least 7 mills along this river at one time, this mill was nearby

Earthworks and bridges for a railway to get to the mills were built but the track was never laid because it was never laid.    An old photo is attached that shows that there once was a big waterwheel on the side of this big mill           $welsh$

 $booboo$        I meant to say it was never laid because it was too expensive so a bonus picture to show where it is

Remember this?   It's near a Norman Castle but it's not the one near London.

It's in N Wales and is about 2 miles from the big mill, but where is the big mill?              $welsh$

Well done Robbie      &well&

I was starting to run out of clues on that one.    It was Felin Fawr     (  Big Mill )  in the Marian Mills area of Dyserth

Rhuddlan sent me a link on the area which is interesting

What is the name of this  building where you would you see this fireplace?         A bonus point if you know the name of the person who allegedly engraved the message

You will see it in a bar in Conwy County and it's not far from a river

I did have another go at the quote, best I could find........

This proverb is a good example of personification, then, because it ascribes human abilities to both Fear and Faith: both abstract and intangible concepts that are, obviously, not human. Fear is given the human ability to knock at a door; to do this, it must have both the intention to knock and the ability to do so—so it must have hands or some physical part with which it can knock. Faith is given the human ability to answer the door; to do this, it must have both the intention to open the door and the physical ability to do so. Again, then, it must have some body part with which it is capable of opening a door.

Ultimately, the proverb means that, when we have faith, we will have no need to fear. However, it uses two examples of personification in order to convey this idea

Well done Steve, you worked really hard for that one.      $good$


After Meleri posted something on here  about Joseph Hughes,  I was having a chat with my brother and it turned out that our G Grandfather  Joseph Hughes did the inscription.    He is Mereri's  G G Grandfather who at one time lived in Penmachno

Thank you H. not an easy one, for a change  :roll:     nice to know your Grandfather did the carving, something for posterity , by the way, my great uncle was a carpenter who carved church furniture in the area, I believe he was a Thomas Hughes, at the time living in Old Colwyn.
