Memories of Clwyd

First Home When I Got Married

I lived above Blundells shop on New Street when I first got married.

Childhood Memories

I have very happy memories of a childhood spent in Mynydd Isa. I was only there for 4 years ('72 - '76) but I crammed a lot of adventures into that time! My friend Audra and I used to go cycling down Rose Lane and look a the 'haunted house' across the fields, never daring to go inside. (It was an old wooden building, derelict at the time). We spent many hours at the bonk! - the local playing field, and would walk up to the building sites in Buckley and climb in and out of the clay pipes. We also used to walk 2 chow dogs called Idris and Ady, (they were really big and fluffy) and used to walk to Bryn a Bal school, which seemed miles, and call at the shops on the way.

Year 6

I've had soo many good times at Gwernymynydd C.P. School with all my friends, they are over but I will come back.

Little Mountain

Hello, I am serching for any info on my dad, Charles Howarth Shone who lived on Little Mountain Road around 1945 - 1970. His father was Charles (Charlie?). They were related to Cyril and Olwyn Shone who lived on the opposite side of the road. I believe he went to Hawarden Grammer School and used to catch the train. Another relation is Tom Shone - I believe married to Gwen. Apologies for the vagueness but when you are young details don't sink in and as you get older you realise it's too late. Many thanks.

Colomendy Camp School

I attended Colomendy School for about two years, coming from the City of Liverpool. I was fascinated with all the open spaces and especially the mountain - Moel Fammu. I can remember having great times there: walking into Mold Village and day trips out, climbing the Catwalk, visiting the camp cinema, the tuck shop.
Then in 1949 I had to return to Tiber Street School for my leaving. I am now 71 but will never forget my time spent at Loggerheads. The local people were always very kind to us.
