Childhood In Bryn Y Maen

A Memory of Bryn-y-maen

As far as I was concerned there was nowhere else, only what I read or what my parents told me, my life centred around the post office, church, vicarage and Bryn Eglwys, and the neighbouring farms, the lovely views to the west. Buses to Colwyn Bay, exactly as described, characters in the hamlet, and the outbreak of war, the Home Guard, reminiscent of Dad's Army, the A.R.P., rationing, less sold in the shop consequently, gathering fruits of nature, country walks, listening to the radio, craft work, simple treats never forgotten, bilingual teaching in Llwydgoed school from Kate Lloyd, who was a lovely lady. Happy carefree days.
