Another great image from Glyn. Note the way the top part of the large field (now owned by Dai Halfway I think) is divided at its top half into strips/plots. What would have been the reason for this? Perhaps allotments back in the 1940's? Anyone with suggestions or memories?
I think I remember them as allotments .St David's Church,one of the tin tabernacles ,was on the left,I believe .I can remember the church bell ringing as I walked to chapel in Bedwellty Pits with my mother and sister
I may be mistaken, but, I think that is where the lower row of houses stood. They were demolished some time before many of the top row were knocked down. The lower row was much shorter than the top row.
The lower row is to the right of the photo and out of view. A lot of rubble from these houses is still there today. Correct they were demolished a long time before the others. Sometime around 1979 I think. I can remember them being there one day and gone the next when I went to the Farm for my 'sneaky' pint when walking the dog.
