The Old Days

A Memory of Blaengwynfi

I was born in 3 High Street, Abergwynfi 19/05/56, where I lived until I got married and moved to London. My father Jackie Lewis worked down the pit most of his working life, and my mother worked in the canteen, Dorothy Lewis, I used to go to the canteen to help her now and then. My brother Robert still lives in the village and all of his family. I will always have good memories of the cape and the years I lived at no 3 High Street.
