Campaigners want help to save Beasleys’ house in Llangennech

Dear Editor,

We are about to start our campaign to save the Beasleys’ house in Llangennech.


For eight years the Beasleys refused to respond to an English only district tax demand, demanding that a Welsh one arrive at their cottage in yr Allt, Llangennech. They lost many of their belongings to the bailiffs after appearing before the court a dozen times, each time taking advantage of the opportunity to demand a court hearing through the medium of Welsh. The Beasleys’ campaign continued for eight years until they received a bilingual tax demand in 1960.


Their stance was an inspiration and started decades of campaigning for the language and its status within Modern Wales.


The house is rapidly deteriorating after being empty for a decade or more. Now is the time to save this historic site for the future by creating a centre that celebrates the tremendous contribution of Trefor and Eileen towards the continuation of the Welsh language and its status.


We at Menter Cwm Gwendraeth Elli plan to buy the house, renovate it and create a heritage centre on the site, which will benefit the local community and also the nation as a whole. We kindly ask for any contribution towards the first stage, which is to buy the site, with the vision of developing a language and heritage centre which will honour the Beasleys’ stance and their sacrifice.


Please could you help us share the word about this?
