  1. You will know from the foreword in the book that the Gilfach Goch Historical Group assisted Mr. Penn in his research for the book and also there are one or two of my photos helping to illustrate it. It is a very good story and what I find fascinating is reading about places I know. I have twice visited Sarah Jane Howell’s grave.
