A Memory of Aberbeeg.
My grandmother and grandfather, Francis and Issac Waters, lived and brought up their family at Woodmans Cottage, Aberbeeg, my grandfather was woodman there working for Pontypool Estates.
I was told of many happy memories of life in Aberbeeg by my mother Thelma, now sadly died, she lived there with her brothers and sisters Jack, Phylis, Alice, Myrtle, Olive and Arthur Waters. My Aunt Olive also lived at Railway Cottage when she married Tom Rendle, so I, as a child, had happy memories of waving to the trains as they went past. Also shopping at Kibbys store, I was sad on visiting the church recently to see it was now closed and hope some plans can be made to save it soon?
My mum had many tales to tell of playing up the Dram road and the Dingle, if anyone has any info or memories of the Waters family I would love to hear from you!
