My Mum Was Born In Borth Y Gest

A Memory of Borth-y-Gest

My mum was born in Borth y Gest and went to school there too and eventually marry at the church on the harbour front in 1956. My Grandad continued living there with my Grandmother until he died in 1984. Every school holiday that I can remember was spent in Borth y Gest, having adventures in the woods, by the Avon bach, collecting bait and fishing, rock climbing the magnificent slate rocks, or making dens above Black Rock sands. My mum married in 1956 and I was born 1957 so I'd say that every year after 1957 was an adventure in that wonderful place.
