Penmachno. The Gwiga Farm Trespass Action.âJudge Sir Horatio Lloyd has just sent his decision to the Registrar of the Llanrwst County Court in the case of Hughes v. Williams. The plaintiff, Mr Hugh Hughes, is the owner of Gwiga Farm, Penmachno, near Bettws-y-coed, and the defendants, Mr Robert and Mrs Jane Williams, are tenants of an adjoining farm called Garrett. The action was for damages for trespass by the defendants in drawing water from a well on Gwiga Farm against the expressed wish of the owner, also an injunction was sought to restrain the defendants from continuing the trespass. The case had been before the court several times, and witnesses were called by defen- dants in proof of an alleged custom of using the well as a public one from time immemorial, and on behalf of the plaintiff witnesses proved having had personal permission from the owners on all occasions they drew water from the well. Mr David Jones, LIanrwst, appeared for the plaintiff, and Mr J. Jones Morris, Blaenau Festiniog, for the defendants. The judge decided in favour of plaintiff with nominal damages of one shilling, and granted an injunction to restrain defendants from drawing water from the well. Costs were allowed on the higher scale.
