On the Red Hill – Mike Parker
Pan fu farw Reg a George o fewn wythnosau i’w gilydd, blynyddoedd ar ôl i’w ffrindiau Mike a Peredur funychu eu partneriaeth sifil, mae Mike a’i bartner Peredur yn darganfod eu bod wedi etifeddu eu cartref – ty bach gwyngalchog “o’r straeon plentyndod”, yn gudd o fewn y bryniau.
Dyma stori sydd dim ond yn sôn am yr Rhiw Goch, ond y gymuned gwledig anhygoel sy’n byw ynddo, a’r etifeddiaeth sy’n ymestyn tu hwnt i’r strwythurau ar y bryn.
In 2006, Mike Parker and his partner Peredur were witnesses at the civil partnership of their friends Reg and George, the first in the small Welsh town of Machynlleth. Years later, when Reg and George died within a few weeks of each other, Mike and Peredur discovered that they had been left their home: a whitewashed ‘house from the children’s stories’, buried deep within the hills.
On the Red Hill is the story of Rhiw Goch, ‘the Red Hill’, and its inhabitants, but also the story of a remarkable rural community and a legacy that extends far beyond bricks and mortar. It is a story that celebrates the turn of the year’s wheel, of ever-changing landscapes, and of the family found in the unlikeliest of places.
