Memories of Bryn Saith Marchog
I used to stay with my nain in Clawddnewidd and have very fond memories. Mrs Watson lived next door and used to pop in every night with some fruit for us. At that time there was a top shop run by Mr Lake and his wife, they were always so nice to us. We used to go to the chapel for service and my nain and a few other villagers used to pluck pheasants. My Uncle Emrys lived in Nant Farm and used to call at nain's every morning with fresh milk from the farm. We went on many walks picking rasberries for nain to make a pie but my favourite was always her ginger cake. I was told never to go to the pond at the bottom of the village as it had a whirlpool in it but of course I had to find out. Once a year there was a show and my nain always dressed up in her Welsh lady outfit. I still visit Clawdd now to... Read more
Does anyone remember my father Cyril Evans, and his family. I think he left the village around the 1940s at the age of 14???
My Uncle And Auntie
My Uncle Brian and my Auntie Doreen used to live here along with their 4 girls - Lynda, Pam, Debby, and Trisha I will never forget the first time we visited - coming from then the built-up area of the Wirral, we lived near Port Sunlight, it was like going back in time - the little post office, the shop full of tellies, and the weather-boarded houses. We stayed for a weekend, visited the school, and listened to the service going on in the chapel, while we paddled in the stream (which was freezing!) What was the name of the nearest pub? - a happy childhood memory My Uncle and Aunt moved, first to Ellesmere Port, and they now live in Ewloe. If anyone remembers them, drop me a line.
Going to School at Llanelidan
I went to Llanelidan school in the 1950 s with my cousin Gwyn Rowlands from Sowrach, I was from Betws yn Rhos, Colwyn Bay.
My grandparents moved to Nant Bach in Llanelidan in the early 40's. My grandfather was Robert Wooldridge.We used to get buses from Liverpool to stay with him. He'd bring his bike to the main road to take our suitcases to the cottage. Oil lamps and battery radio, it was blissful and we would walk to Evans Farm down the road for milk fresh from the cow. I have never forgotten the place and tried to find it, but its fallen down now...what a shame.
Nain, Taid And Clocaenog
Clocaenog, I have some very good memories of this quiet village. I used to visit my Nain & Taid during the school holidays in mid 70's -80's helping out on their farm pentre, collecting the hay in the summer, riding on the tractors, milking the cows, just so much to keep you entertained as kids. Good memories. I do occasionally visit Clocaenog church to pay my respects and thank my nain & taid for introducing me to this wonderfull little village.
I remember the long summers swimming in the river ,and visiting my grandparents who lived in he do smithy cottage yr efail , there was no nicer place to be than in bettws
