Hi there

I have a very distant connection to a family called Jones. Thomas Jones lived at Gigrin from 1835 until his death in July 1909. He had 10 children.
I think Gigrin is now something to do with Kites (birds not toys!)

Hello
Yes Gigrin Farm is well known in the locality because they have a red kite feeding station there. It is a spectacular sight to see 100s of these spectacular birds gathering to be fed. Especially when 30 years ago they were almost extinct in this country.
