Ash Hall - a Memory of Cowbridge.

The place you are referring to is, Ash Hall Ystradowen. I know this as my parents were there in '64/'65 doing exactly same job. The house was owned by the Charnauds, who owned The Pencil Factory. I lived there for a while with my two brothers, it was a lovely house and grounds, very much a hunting family. Mum had to clean all their gear, and cook and make afternoon tea - all very posh.We used to get snowed in and use a sledge in winter. My brothers went to school at Lanharry. Their oldest son used to give me a lift to the bus stop in his mini, as I worked in Cardiff. Small world, aye.
