Cofiwch Epynt… Is it not high time that the army left the area?

This is the slogan on the side of a bus stop shelter on the road from Cwm y Glo to Llanrug, four miles outside Caernarfon. One is used to seeing ‘Cofiwch Dryweryn’, but this is a new twist. I do not know who the artist is, but they’ve chosen the same colour – red text on a white background. Many have learned the story of Tryweryn recently through the slogan. Epynt might well reach others in the same way. We could have one every year – teaching the story of Welsh history via murals. In the absence of Welsh history being taught in schools, it could be an option. Learning the story of Epynt in 2020 is vital as 80 years have passed since the Clearing. But where is Epynt, and what happened there in 1940?
