Hi Steven,
I live just 2 miles from the Lletty and can confirm also that it is open and looking good.

My Mum always told me she thought her grandparents owned the Lletty at some time.......... Something else for me to-do list ::)

I do know her grandfather was the licensee of the Swan Inn Greenfield in 1917.

I spend most of my weekends in The Lletty with my Grandad when i was a proper boy. Being 22 i aint much older than a pup but the memories will stay. I remember my Grandad used to get that drunk in the afternoon on the winter nights he had to follow my light-up trainers up the lletty hill haha.
The Lletty has been opening and shutting a great deal the last few years but is running well at this present moment.

 :) ;) :D ;D

phil100652  ;D I'm trying to trace who the owners of the Lletty in 1841-1871 as I am helping my friend trace her family who seemed to run the Inn between this time!! The info you have would be helpful to add to her file so I would be very grateful of a copy of this as it may give us some insight as to whether they owned the pub or just ran it!! :)
Many Thanks!!

Would the local records office not have the information, I imagine each owner had to pay their "fair share" of taxes...http://www.genuki.org.uk/big/wal/FLN/#History  ...at the very least they can probably point you in the right direction
This fellow seems to have a real love for the old building...

Reopened and repainted  http://www.geograph.org.uk/photo/561741
The honest man 1699 sign over the door has also been repainted... good for the new owners to give the place a new life ... http://www.geograph.org.uk/photo/1145263

Thanks J.J. I noticed those pics as we were trawling the net and wondered why that person was so interested in The Lletty myself!! :)
We went to the Records office in Mold and Hawarden on Thursday but no info on the owners of the building I'm afraid, though the staff were brilliant!! :)
Plus we were also looking for burial records and apparently lots of those got lost too so we ended up traipsing around the cemetaries of the area but to no avail!!
Ahhh well... at least we got a day out!! :)
Many thanks once again! :)

I wonder how the honeft man 1699 sign cam to be ..I imagine there might be some history there to look for as well

Here is fome fabulouf writing from the era to put you in a mood for the hiftory of the fign...It if fomething you won't juft fee in any old bookftore...

Proper Heads....
blindly follow them. To them they
facrifice merit, innocence, diftinguifhed
talents, and the longeft fervices. Some-
times they fhall lend a favourable ear
to the man that fhall prefume to fpeak
againft thofe minifters or favourites,
and upon feeing the charge clearly
made out, they fhall ftorm, and pro-
mife to fupport the accufer againft the
minifter, or the favourite. But foon
the Prince fhall grow weary of protect-
ing the man, whofe fole dependance is
upon himfelf; the protection is too pain-
ful to him in the end; and for fear of
feeing a diffatisfied countenance in the
perfon of the minifter, the honeft man,
who hath told him the truth, fhall be
given up to his indignation. After this,
do you deferve to be informed ? Can
you hope that any one will inform
you ? What wife man will prefume to
apply himfelf directly to you, without
taking the minifter in his Way, whofe
jealoufy is implacable ? Do you not
deferve to fee only with his eyes ? And
are you not given up to his moft
unjuft paffions, and moft unreafonable
prejudices ? And have you any remedy
left againft fo great an evil ?
