My Birth Place

Dear readers, Llwynpia was where I was born at the Hospital, 8th August 1947. My Mom was taken there in labour with me and I should have been born at my grand-parents house which was in Gilfach, Bargoid. At 6 weeks old my parents moved me to Birmingham where I have lived ever since. One day I hope to go and see the place where I was born Thankyou for the memories x
