Brecon town (Powys) - help with an old recitation please
« on: Wednesday 12 September 18 23:31 BST (UK) »
My aunt, Brecon born and bred, used to recite, years ago, some comic verses based on Brecon place-names which I have almost completely forgotten; the only words I remember are: " ... was so narrow it fell into Old Bill's barrow." I would dearly love to recover the verses.
