More scenes from 1960’s Troedyrhiw

Here are three more sketches from Troedyrhiw born artist Alan Jenkins recalling parts of the village as they were in the early 1960’s. The views show Tyntaldwyn Road from the top of the hill, Chapel Street from behind the top house in School Road and houses in Morgan Jones Square. Do these bring back memories for you? Have things changed much?


About davidjcollier

Originally from South Wales I have lived in Nottinghamshire for over forty years. I am married and have three grown up children and two grandchildren. Having worked in education for 43 years I will retire in July 2012. My interests include history (general, local and family), rugby union, swimming, photography, bird watching and gardening. For the benefit of anyone who may actually read this (extremely unlikely, I admit) please do not confuse 'interests' with knowledge or skill. My involvement in a community project which aims to rescue a graveyard from the effects of almost 30 years of neglect. also keeps me quite busy. View all posts by davidjcollier
