Strange to think of my great-grandparents walking about these street 100 years ago. They lived just around the corner on Greenfield Street, which is where my grandfather was born. Sadly none of our family live anywhere close to South Wales anymore.
Blimey. If he was still alive I don't think my great-grandfather would rcognise his old workplace at all!
Please visit the Yateast website for a fascinating history and historic photographs of this area.
I've just attempted a new photo of the area but it is totally overgrown. Take a look at http://www.panoramio.com/photo/75805107
Well, that was easy. It's a famous church and I can't believe that I had it in the wrong place for 4 and a half years! Thanks again. Thanks to this, I know more about the Church (saw some articles on it, including at Wikipedia) and your Great great grandfather.
