Aberaman

A Memory of Aberaman.

Having been born and reared in Aberaman, I spent many hours in the playing fields, even before it was named King George's field.  Locally it is known as the hayfield, and even now is a source of pleasure for football and dog walkers. Sadly though, often the childrens playing area has been vandalised and it is no longer safe to 'camp' there overnight, as we once did, with a bottle of water and jam sandwiches!
In the picture given on the site, a car can be seen, driving down what was and still is, Tonllwydd.  Walking up up this path is lovely, it takes you to ' the line' an old railway track, which once carried coal to and from the local collieries, including Tower.
Anyone care to add to memories?

With thanks to Dorothy Charles for this memory of Aberaman
