Full Circle

By Steffan Jones Hughes
July 2005, Wrexham
A digital story from Shoebox Stories

"We moved to Betws Gwerfyl Goch two years ago from Wigan in Lancashire. I'd never heard of the place before. The house needed renovating and a garden made. It had been built in 1834, and as we dug in the garden we found all these bottles and fragments. I began to think about who had lived there before and how we came to be there. It seemed to be quite by chance.

I started to collect the bottles and use them as a starting point for exploring stories, putting images into them that you have to turn to get the full picture, the story revealing itself.

Then I came across this photo of my great grandfather and discovered that he was a postman in Gwyddelwyn just over the hill from where we live now and so I've kind of come full circle and somehow a part of my story has become clearer and the fragments have fallen into place."
