Large House With Iron Gates - a Memory of Cowbridge.
I moved to Cowbridge with my parents when I was just 5 years old. My mother was housekeeper and my father was the odd job man. I remember large iron gates to this big house. They kept chickens and ducks and there were 3 dogs, Woopsie, Emma and Barney and the daughter had a horse named Sugar. The family had a pencil factory nearby. I remember coming out of the gates and there was a hill and on the left a confectioner's shop. I remember walking to school through fields. Had dinners at school and afterwards had to wash up our plates etc. Can anyone please identify where I was living? This was 1956 and I had my 6th birthday there. We returned to London after about a year as my mother was unwell.
