Punching Tree - a Memory of Merthyr Mawr.

The Punching Tree was in front of the church. I spent alot of time at Merthyr Mawr, camping with the 5th Bridgend Hope Church Girl Guides. I became Captain of them in about 1954. Does anyone remember the Water Mill? I also camped at Wig Fach at Gorwellion. My maiden name was Roberts and I emigrated to West Austalia in 1975. My mother came out to join me and my family in1990, she will be 100 years old on 17.01.2011. She has a million memories of the Bridgend area.
