Memories Of Tynybryn - a Memory of Tonyrefail.

I was born at 17 heol Waun Tynybryn in 1952. We later moved to number 2. My family were the Domans and Males.
I remember we would go for walks just behind dai the shop in Nant Eirin .We would cross the river and walk to the porcelain factory and then onto the Griffin pub which was known as "the bog" in Gilfach
I remember Tynybryn Park when it was full of ash and rubbish , we called it the meadow and we would walk through it to go to Ton shopping.
Every summer we would have the 4 clubs carnival and sports day ,it was good fun.
