Len Morris lived in Devauden over 100 years ago.  His son-in-law sent us this story and photos.


My late father-in-law William Leonard Morris (known as Len) lived in No1 Tredean Cottage c.1909/10; his father William Morris was Head Gardener & Chauffeur to William Walker Hood of Tredean.  Over the years Len often reminisced and told me stories about his life in Devauden.  In 1985, on his 80th birthday, my wife Jen (Len’s daughter) and I offered to take Len out for the day and there was only one place he wanted to go: Devauden.  Whilst there, I took photos of Len standing outside the cottage, the church and the school.   At the time we were outside the school taking photos we got chatting to two dinner ladies and they said the school was due to close in a few days.  They went to see the school teacher and on hearing that Len was an old pupil invited him in to meet the children.
