The graffiti painted on the ruined gable wall of a cottage known Troed-y-rhiw reading 'Cofiwch Dryweryn' (Remember Tryweryn), donated by Charles Green.
The graffiti painted on the ruined gable wall of a cottage known Troed-y-rhiw reading ‘Cofiwch Dryweryn’ (Remember Tryweryn), urges remembrance of Tryweryn Valley near Bala which was submerged by a reservoir, Llyn Celyn, in 1965. It has been variously renewed and repainted over the years with the same slogan, most recently after vandalism in 2019.

The first photograph shows earlier graffiti on the wall, it was taken in c. 1988 and donated by Cathy Evans. (Ref: DD2023_003); the second shows the wall following recent vandalism, it was taken on 13 April 2019 and donated by Charles Green. (Ref: DD2023_002_13).
