Story-Grannie Hale and The Angel
This is a story that my mums granny Rowena HALE Nee MADDREN use to tell her, when she was a little girl. She was born and lived in Plye, Wales, and when she was young she used to go to the graveyard at St James in Pyle and pinch the ribbons off of the newly intered graves, to wear in her long black hair. One day she fell into a grave and standing over her was an angel-this frightened Rowena so much she never stole the ribbons again. We had the pleasure of visiting Pyle three years ago and the Angel is still there, standing above a grave! It was a very emmotional find.
Anyone else who may have known my Great Grannie or her family please contact me.
