Marians on the Mawddach is a social history of Farchynys, the Welsh Centre of Queen Mary’s School, Walsall. It is the warmest evocation of lives being shaped by an inspiring landscape, a unique document of changing times, and a tribute to the vision of one man.
The compiler and editor, Paul Walton, took his first QM Minibus to the Mawddach in November 1968 – it was his 13th birthday. After several eventful tours of duty with Messrs, Brudenell, Dickson, Anderson and Paxton, he went up to Brasenose College, Oxford, where he acted and studied Modern History. This proved to be the perfect blend of experience for a career in advertising where he played a small part in the launch of three brands which are now essential to surviving any weekend at Farchynys : Quorn, Magnum and Lynx deodorant. He lives in Oxford with Babs, his long-suffering wife, who has been to Farchynys more times than seems strictly necessary.
Cost of the book is £15 plus £2 post and packing within UK.
