The Welsh Land Settlement Society was set up to create work and homes for the long term unemployed of the 1930’s depression. In Wales the most successful approach was the co-operative example that operated in Sealand and 4 other sites, which were mainly in South Wales.
WLS Sealand was built in 1937, 80 houses and 850 acres of farmland. through this site I am attempting to gather stories of descendants of the original settlers. Do you have a story about your parents and/or grandparents who migrated from the South Wales valleys in the late 1930’s to take up a house and job at Sealand? Do you have any photos I could use? If you have a connection with one of the other sites your stories and photos are also very welcome.
