Llanfair Talhaiarn, Conwy County
Llanfair Talhaiarn sits on the banks of the River Elwy some 5 miles from Abergele in Conwy County, North Wales. For the English tongue the name is often shortened to Llanfair TH. Among the Welsh people the town is probably best known as the birthplace of the poet John Jones or to give him his bardic name John Jones "Talhaiarn", a man described as the "Welsh Burns" ... a man of the soil who found his inspiration in nature.

The parish church of St Mary's, a twin-naved church situated above the village, takes its name from the Welsh "Llan" or Church, and "Fair" Mary, but few remember the reason for its old name "Iron Brow". Some say Talhaiarn, or Iron Brow, was the name of a famous chief or bard.
To North Walians the village is known as a popular picnic site for the family day out. With beautiful countryside, an old stone bridge, a riverbank and a pub close by what more could a family want
Well if you require a bit of exercise there is always the Llanfair Talhaiarn summer fayre and the Moel Unben Hill Race. I remember this race as having one of the steepest climbs in the North Wales road race calendar, and if my memory serves me well, on the day I ran the race the winner, Griff Owen, collapsed on crossing the line and was carted off to hospital in an ambulance!
