Happy 21st birthday – 111 years ago today!

An interesting discovery was made during clearance work around a big beech tree in the gardens of Mostyn Hall. A plaque was found at the base, confirming the tree had been planted to commemorate the 21st birthday of the Hon. Edward Llewelyn Roger Lloyd Mostyn, on 16th March 1906 – 111 years ago today!

Celebrations were really taken very seriously, with mugs printed and all sorts of events held. The front page is pictured, but you can see the whole programme – including some wonderful advertisements – if you click the link, below.
