The Old Post Office - a Memory of Cwm Penmachno.

My granddad, Charlie Davies, owned the post office and it was where my dad, Arfon Davies, was born. When my grandad died it was taken over by my Auntie Nellie, my dad's sister. My brothers, Gwyn, Iwan and Geraint came to the post office often with my dad. I remember being the centre of attraction as we were different as we came from outside the village. In the 1950's I remember the village being a busy place which we loved coming to. My dad was a Station Master in Chester until he retired in 1979.
