As had to go there to buy my mums underwear for her( I was always so embarrassed as I was only 11 at the time.. lol p.s does anyone remember a Carl kenna on here from penywaun.. would love to get in touch with old friends and schoolmates...

I used to stay in Aberdare back in the 1960's when I was driving long distance trucks.I'm pretty sure that the pub I used to stay in was called"The Eagle"? I remember that the sheep used to be in the High Street most nights after 9pm! I have some fond memories of Aberdare and being taught some Welsh language sentences
