Growing Up In Tir Yr Berth - a Memory of Tir-y-berth.

I grew up in Tir-Yr-Berth, my friends I recall were; Gwyn Fieldhouse, Alan Langford, sadly not with us anymore, killed on motorcycle. John and Clive Williams, David Thomas, Alan Swift and many more. I lived in 29 Duffryn Street, nearly opposite the Parkers and next door to the Sharps. Remember Brian and Janet Sharp. I also remember 'bomber' Williams who was friends with my father Cyril Aurelius who was brought up in 'the berth'. Lot of fond memories of the berth. I moved to near Worthing before the miners strike in 1984, am still here. If anyone that knows me wishes to contact me my e-mail address is:
