Looking at this photo, I'm taken back to summers on that beach full of pebbles and the cafe shown with its novel smell, something like milky coffee! At about this time Abergele had a cinema, upstairs in the market street. My parents owed Coed Mor, a guest house in the town, and some of the children ...Read full memory
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 ...Read full memory
We use to walk down this road to the beach with the cafe and seafood stalls at the end. Use to watch the "Welsh Dragon" train go past as the line was close to the beach. Steam in those days and what a site it was.
I remember on family holidays we use to come and sit on the beach and make a hollow out of the pebbles and shelter from the wind. Also the shellfish stall - of getting cockles for me and oysters for my mum. Its exactly how I remember it.
I grew up in Abergele and I remember a man called Harold. He was a sort of 'tramp' I use this word rather in caution because he lived in a small shack by Slaters on what is now the Tesco car park. He helped out at the cattle market which was again sighted where Teso'c is now. As a boy I was a little afraid of him because he tended to be ...Read full memory
"Uncle Griff" was Griffith Breeze, originally from Oswestry, but lived in Abergele with his daughter Thelma - he wasn't actually a relative, I think he may have been brought up with my Step-Grandmother Agnes Jones (nee Adams.) I lived in Liverpool and would visit "Uncle Griff" at Oswestry and Abergele - he was such a lovely ...Read full memory
I was sent from Liverpool to stay at the Margaret Beavan memorial home in Abergele in the late 1940s early 1950s. I recall it down a road facing a farm only a short walk to the shops and beach. We would often walk to the bearly Gwych Castle and spend hours there. Does anyone else remember this home?
I was a student at Clarendon between 1963 and 1966, and how I remember the Sunday evenings curled up before the fire listening to gospel and classical music before supper. Of course there were also the House evenings spent in the Principal's parlour doing our sewing or embroidery or some other craft work, ...Read full memory
My great grandparents used to live at Fairfield, Sea Road, they also used to have a barbers & tobacconists at Stanley House, I think it's Bridge Street. I gGo quite often to Abergele now as my son has a caravan there. Would love to find out more info if anyone has any.
We had a small caravan in Pensarn and as a child I remember the walk down to the beach and the man with his donkies in this picture. Further along was a small fun fair.
