Fond Memories

A Memory of Brockweir

I lived at The Lilacs with my great-aunt Mrs Emma Griffiths from approximately 1936 until 1943 when the property was sold and I moved to London with my parents. I attended Brockweir School and later Coleford Grammar School. During the Second World War the bus ran twice a week and a big trip was to Chepstow on the train for the pictures. The Triangle was the local store and Mckenzie Hall the only place for activites. I have been back several times and it still looks pretty much the same.
