Ty Brics (Brick House)
Ty Brics (Brick House)

3/52 for the group T189ers weekly alphabet challenge

This week's theme: B is for Bricks

This wasn't entirely easy for me. As can be seen from the buildings surrounding Ty Brics, everything in this town is built of stone! Which is why the one and only house made of bricks is simply called Ty Brics (Brick House) to distinguish it from all the others. :)

The building is currently a sweet shop selling all sorts of traditional confectionery.

Like all Welsh place names, it's purely descriptive.

I don't know why there is just this one brick building. Presumably the bricks were brought in specially by train.

Of course all the houses were brick where I grew up in Manchester and in fact there was a disused brickworks near our junior school.

Do you suppose they sell Humbugs?

I'm sure they do, though I haven't actually been inside. Too much temptation!

ah yes, temptation she's it's been around since the garden of the Eden. >grin<

It's a good thing there's an ocean between me and Ty Brics!!!
