0653 Dyserth Penisa. Posted 3rd March1906. Penisa crossroads and Bodnant Forge, looking towards Moel Hiraddug (y Foel) taken from Dyserth Road. There are telegraph poles in this picture. Though there would have been no telephones in Dyserth then - there would have been a telegraph service to the Post Office.

1195 Graig Fawr-ISJ
1195 Graig Fawr.

I think this must date from the very early 1900s, with Dyserth Castle ruins still there. You can just see Mynydd Seion chapel on waterfall hill as well – opened in 1896. The large house on the left (Craig y Castell) was once that of Sir Geoffrey Summers CBE (1891-1972) of John Summers & Sons Steelworks, Shotton.
The limestone hill behind, Graig Bach, as well as the Castle itself, were quarried away to feed the furnaces in the said Steelworks. The photo was taken from Graig Fawr - donated to the National Trust by Sir Geoffrey.
Sir Geoffrey now rests in St Bridget's churchyard in Dyserth, 10 metres forward of the porch and to the right, beneath a large granite headstone.
