This photograph was taken when the War Memorial gates were dedicated in 1923. The gates have changed since then, with new plaques added to commemorate more men who made the ultimate sacrifice. The gates have now been restored, repainted and the plaques replaced.
MEMORIES OF THE PAST
The English Wesleyan Methodist Chapel. Known as the ‘Brake’ Chapel was opened in 1886 and closed in 2002. It was demolished in 2010.
A RARE SITE TODAY
Victoria Road, Brynteg. This photograph was taken in 2014 when the road was being resurfaced and all the motor cars were removed. It must have looked like this before the second world war, empty and quiet.
WORLD WAR ONE SOLDIERS
This is a group of soldiers from the Broughton area.
The picture was taken (we think) in Gwalia Road, Pentre Broughton
Moss Valley is beautiful parkland. The Valley provides a rich habitat for wildlife and is particularly noted for its birds. Moss Valley has an industrial past, and was once a major coal mining area.
BRYN SEION CHAPEL
Bryn Seion Chapel is sited on Clayton Road, Pentre Broughton. The chapel opened for worship in 1840. When it closed it lay derelict for many years. The burial ground was used a rubbish tip until the History Group became involved and started to clean up the devastation that years of neglect had left behind.
