|David Lloyd George and Llansumdewy.|
there lies Buried,one of England's Greatest and most famous Prime Ministers, David Lloyd George.
He didn't want to be buried in London or anywhere else but in a favourite place, that he knew and loved as a child .It is in the village of Llansumdewy , a tiny little place and it was here that as a new widow his mother brought her family, to live with her mother and shoemaker brother, in the late years of the 1800s. It was here also that David learned, from his mentor and Uncle, all the values he was to hold onto in his later political career.
I confess that before our visit here I knew little about his life other than the basics but since then I have read up on him and he is totally fascinating . He definitely liked the ladies and was never short of female company. This probably stems from the fact that his mother and sister did everything for him but he was a kind man by all accounts and very loving Father. The greatest tragedy of his life was when his young daughter of 14 died of a burst appendix. He never really got over this as they were very close.
We had a great weekend in and around the Llyn Peninsula ,as we celebrated 40 years of marriage , revisiting places we'd not seen for a good few years and new ones too.
