Copyright of the overall design of the site is held by the Llansantffraed History Society. Copyright of individual pages remains with the authors of those pages.

Most of the images appearing on the site are from the "Jim Jones" collection and are reproduced here with permission. The copyright holder is content for the images to be copied for personal or other non commercial usage. 

The collection grew from the discovery in 1971 by Dr David Kirby of some old glass negatives dating from the last decade of the 19th century in the attic of what was then known as Siop Newydd, Llanon.  From this small but invaluable start, the "Jim Jones" collection of images of Llanon and surrounding area has grown into the thousands. The Llansantffraed History Society applauds the achievement of rescuing and researching the images and is grateful for permission to reproduce them on this site.

The original glass negatives were given to the National Library of Wales in 1998 for safekeeping. The "Jim Jones" collection is still open to receive new additions.  Please don't discard old photographs, especially if they are in a Llanon attic.

Copyright holders of other images are identified individually. These images should not be copied without permission.
