Deakin Fairground

A Memory of Brynmawr

I was born in Brynmawr and lived there until I got married.

I can rember Deakin fair very well, it always was outside the Buffs club on Station Road which lead to Brynmawr railway station.

The fair was very busy ever week it come to Brynmawr, Tuesday night was busy, all the young people would go to the dance in Churchhouse, then down to the fair to finish off the night.
