Happy Days

A Memory of Abergele

This photo shows what was known as the black shed just above the first bridge on the river Gele, to the left of the photo was the school field at the bottom of Berth Glyd where I was born. If you go up Gypsy Lane you will come to an old stone bridge, this bridge is known as the first bridge, which is one of four that crosses the river Gele, as you follow the footpath on the right-hand-side of the river heading towards Rhyl where the Gele flows into the river Clwyd, I used to hand tickle wild brown trout in the Gele river when I was 9 years old. Happy days. If Kenny Lamb or any of the lads who went to school with me in Abergele are reading this, they will remember me and my lurcher dog Rex. Still poaching, old habits are hard to break.
