Above we see an original postcard courtesy of Mrs Sue Sazio now living in Australia she wrote “I have an old post card of Bedlinog as my mum was evacuated there during the war, I also think you have pictures on this site of Mrs Farr whom my mum stayed with during that time”

Some new photographs April 2010

I took the following photographs from the mountain above Pentrebach looking back down the valley to Bedlinog. I will go back to this area again with a more powerful camera to get some clearer shots but for now here are three photographs of Bedlinog taken April 19th 2010

Bedlinog

Bedlinog 1900 was still developing as a village and there were still a few streets to be constructed…the photograph below shows the bottom of the village, then the Cwm hill to the top and the colliery
