- 27 1885 (Mon.) Monthly Markets at Pensarnau began. Posters and handbills circulated by N. W. Mitchell, Town Clerk. When the railway arrived in 1886 an attempt was made to advertise the marts:
Here is Ysgawenydd, the local poet:
The markets of late have suffered in town
Thro’ the want of conveyance close to the ground
Now the train is convenient and not far away
To carry the stock away the same day.
Good number of hurdles are here to keep,
Some for the cattle and some for the sheep.
And stables close by, and stalls all complete,
And corn, if required, or good hay to eat.
