Other Memories from Abergwynfi

Visited Abergwynfi a couple of times in the past 20 years, to see where my Great Grandfather was a policeman in 1902. His name was John Normington. We visited the old Police station which is now someone's home, did not get a chance to talk to anyone as no one was home. Does anyone out there have any info on the history of the police station. I have lived in Canada for the past 40 years. Andy Normington

I was born in Abergwynfi in 1942, but the family moved up to the midlands when I was a few weeks old. We returned home every year for our annual hols and sometimes at Xmas. The memories I hold are quite idyllic and I have never lost my love of mountains. We had numerous relatives in the village, and there were always visits to be made. I have firm memories of them making the film 'The Blue Scar', both of my two eldest brothers were extras and had to follow the ambulance. Happy memories.

I was born in 1949 in Abergynfi at 3 Heol y Felin in my grandparents house (Edith and Len Radford). I lived there till I was 4 then moved to Croeserw until 1966, then moved to Nottinghamshire when Duffryn Rhondda pit closed. I have 17 years of good and fond memories when I lived down there.
