Well, who’d have though it – Lord Penrhyn was a bit of a poet! He and darbyshire (a fellow quarry owner) seem to have had a fair amount of bardic banter. Can’t help but wonder what Penrhyn’s bardic name “Eryr o’r Penrhyn” reveals about his personality?!
Darbyshire’s poems are quite legible and entertaining. Penrhyn’s on the other hand…..well, what can you make out?
