ANNIE FROM PENYGARN

Stories from a South Wales Valley

I have recently been in touch with Steve Parry who came across this blog and who lives in York. His mother and father are both from Pontypool and he was born in Panteg Hospital in 1958. He says that his Mum is full of stories of her growing up in Pontypool.

He says that his mother is a Curtis by birth and that her stories are about the Curtis/Hughes/Gregory families. Steve has put some photographs on the site. He says he regularly returns home to wander the family sites. Yes, the pull of the valleys never goes away!

I’m quite certain that visitors to this blog will love to read Steve’s. I’ve just done so and I found it very evocative of past times, many of which I’ve written about in previous posts. It’s called “Annie from Penygarn” – Stories from a South Wales Valley.¬†¬†Just click here to read it:
