Childhood Memories - a Memory of Ystrad Mynach.

My grandparents lived in Bryn Mynach Avenue (Beach family) and later my Uncle Fred & Aunty Doreen. My own mother had moved to London shortly after leaving school.
My brother spent the war years in Ystrad and I have spent many a happy holiday staying in the area. I still have a lot of cousins living in Maes y Cwmmer and Caerphilly areas.
I always try and get down to South Wales from Essex at least once or twice a year.
Always good times and the last three trips this year the sun has shone.
