Description[edit]

Tegryn is a village in the north Pembrokeshire community of Clydau and is home to the Clydau Community Centre (Canolfan Clydau), a charity.[1] It was opened in November 2014 and cost £600,000.[2]

The village has a pub, the Butchers Arms, a post office (established in 1948[3]), a garage and a primary school.[4]

Education[edit]

In 1860 a schoolroom was built near the chapel.[5] The present school in Tegryn is Ysgol Clydau Primary School.[6] A 2008-9 Estyn report described the school as having a strong Welsh ethos; there were 63 pupils between 4 and 11 years old, and a third of pupils used Welsh as a main language at home.[7]

In 2014 there were 53 children at the school.[8]

Worship[edit]

Llwynyrhwrdd Chapel; there were separate doors for men and women

A Welsh Independent chapel was established at Llwyn-yr-hwrdd to the south of the village in 1805.[9] It was rebuilt in 1817 and 1846, and in 1873 it had a membership of 335.[5]
