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 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.

I clearly recall the lower row. A Mr and Mrs Burr kept a shop there and I visited their shop many times.Emrys.

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.

Didn't they burn down the school in one of the episodes?

The school did burn down - but not in District Nurse. It was allegedly being used as a storage facility for antiques when it burned down.
One can only wonder at the cause of the fire ! ! !
