Childhood Delight

A Memory of Argoed, The

I was born in number 31 Penylan Road, Argoed. With wonderful memories of playing in the fields all around, Argoed, it was such a safe place to play. Building camps in the front field, making dams in the stream next to my house, sliding down the tips, going swimming in the river - it was always freezing but wonderful, building a fire and roasting spuds, fishing - all with good friends, most of which were older than me but looked after me, being one of the youngest, only if I could go back fifty years.
