Quoits - Wales v Scotland 1960
Many people in Llanhilleth remember a Wales v Scotland quoits international played on the quoit bed at Llanhilleth Park.
Prior to the game, a group of Scottish pipers lead the teams through the village to the park.
Although the match featured in the video took place in Cwmavon, Aberdare, it does feature Llanhilleth’s own, Welsh Champion, Fred Parker.
The video includes a good description of the game for those not familiar with it.
The Park’s quoit “bed” was located near the river wall at the entrance to the park, but was lost when the new park entrance was created.
