I remember the line and playing fields, very well. Another of my haunts was Mike's field, Aberaman. My girlfriend and I spent many happy hours in these two places. We used to walk to Aberdare along the line and come out at the base of the Graig mountain. Also in Mike's field was the open air baths, where we spent a lot of our time in summer. I was born in the Oaklands Lodge at Cardiff Road - unfortunately not in existence any more. Good old days.
