The Mary Moxley Murder

In December 1842 the foul murder of Mary Moxley was committed at Penterry. Local labourer Edward Rees was tried and hanged for the crime in April 1843.

On Saturday 30th October 2010, to a packed audience at St. Arvans Memorial Hall, the St. Arvans Pantomaniacs staged a dramatisation of the trial.

Refreshments were provided in the form of a hog roast, and the St Arvans Occasional Singers entertained us with contemporary songs. Then the audience delivered their verdict: Not guilty - by a large majority!
