I went to visit my old home where my mothers ashes are scattered recently to see it gutted! It was my home during the 1960's and the only place that ever felt like home - even with no electricity, gas or running water.
The door was never locked ( it didn't have or need a lock then ), Dinorwig Quarries produced slate instead of electricity and salmon used to come up the river to spawn.

Lovely shot, but shame about the current events going on there. It's so sad to see the old world disappearing, especially when it's fond family memories.

Oh the memories that place must hold for you, I would imagine quite a shock for you when you got there. It looks a nice area to have lived in but I'll bet it was rather cold in the winter. Nice shot.

The passage of time is not always kind so hang on to your memories no one can change them. You have also taken a very good image.
Joan.

Visits to houses you lived in as a child rarely turn out well. Thanks for sharing.

Thank you for your comments - much appreciated. Oddly enough, the house is being converted for the mountain rescue team. My mother and I were members of the original Llanberis rescue team which was run by Chris Briggs, who owned the Pen y Gwryd hotel and any climbers or walkers in the bar or local climbers were roped in to help with the rescues on Snowdon.

Well I never! I've just stumbled across your website and I was looking at the building works on Sunday last while I was wading in the river. They are a bit more advanced now...

A couple of the names are familiar to me - Geoff Arkless and Joe Brown, but I didn't start climbing until the mid-seventies, so I missed this generation. It was interesting reading your memories Smile

I live "round the corner" in Rhiwlas,
Cheers, Goggz

If you climbed in the 70's you will probably know Charlie Brown and Jimmy Jewell who worked for Mo Antoine. The 'Big Jim' in Petes Eats was named after Jimmy Jewell.

Jeff Arkless's ex wife, Brede, moved to Twizel in New Zealand - unfortunately she died two or three years ago.
