Skerries View House Cemaes Bay

A Memory of Bull Bay

When I was a young boy, aged about ten or eleven back in 1947/48, I can remember going to stay with Mr & Mrs Henshaw who lived at the above house having moved from Tal Y Cafn in the Conwy Valley.
From what I can remember the house had been used by the RAF during the war.
We used to cut the hay by hand and make small hay stacks.
I used to sleep in a little room overlooking Cemlyn Bay and I can still remember watching the Skerries Light House flashing on and off.
When we had walks in the surrounding fields I can remember going into a derelict house that once belonged to a famous singer.
Several times a week we would walk in to Cemaes to the shops and then walk back again past Trwyn Y Wylfa Farm.

Happy days.
