The country enjoyed Spring Bank Holiday Monday yesterday. This holiday originated as the Monday following Pentecost, known as Whitsun or Whit Monday, but was fixed as the last Monday in May from 1971.

The Talyllyn Railway notice for train services this day dates from the 1940s, but as it is undated, which week it was is unknown. This day tended to be the start of the summer train service on the railway with trains at the time of the notice operating on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.
