Dimbath Pond

A Memory of Blackmill

My name is David Diamond. I was born in Blackmill 63 years ago (in a house called Glas yn Ys - Blue Island in english) my fond memories are of going up to the Dimbath pond along with my mates with our father's shovels and spades to dig clodgings to dam up the pond - great stuff. We would be up there all day, our parents never worried about us in those days - kiddies were safe - not so today. I had an evening paper round which used to take about 3 hours to complete as long as I didn't stop on the way to play football on the "black" in Glynllan. More memories soon God bless, regards Dave.
