Brondeg - a Memory of Aberbeeg.
I lived in Brondeg from 1953 until 1965 when the house was demolished to make way for the by-pass. Daddy was the general manager of Webbs brewery and W. J. Jones was the managing director. They lived next door to us until Uncle Bill retired and Mr Snazell took over as M.D. At that point Mr L. Newman and his wife and family moved in next door to us and we were there until the house was demolished.
I was at school with Anne Collins the daughter of Mr and Mrs Collins, the people who ran the Hanbury Hotel. We went first to Ty'r Graig school and then to Abertillery Grammar School.
I remember Brondeg as a wonderful house to grow up in - but on looking back I don't think I would have wanted to look after it as my mother did. It was always cold in the winter and required a lot of maintenance. All the same I was heartbroken when it was demolished and we moved to Abertillery
