Penderyn Folklore

It is surprising to know that 200 years ago there were no seats in churches and when people came to church the old were permitted to stand leaning against the wall. A saying to have your back leaning against the wall’ may have come from this.
If a man and woman in a village were leading immoral lives they may have their life’s taken off dabbed with mud, they might be carried around on ladders nude, they might be tied on a pony back nude and the horse given a bump and left out on the common all night. Now these were practicing the Ceffyl Pren.
