    Cold one that. I'm sure you older folks have lived through some harsh winters but I was living in Roath at that time in a house with single glazing :hehe:

    The old man always mentions 62-63, says they still had snow in the garden until march. Had to dig his way out of Barry

    It was the same in Rumney, and all of Cardiff we had at least a foot in our street and there were deeper drifts as well. Then a big freeze came -degrees till March

    I was born in January ‘63. Apparently there were a few anxious moments in my old man’s Austin A30 on the journey from Maindee to the Lydia Beynon.

    Newport, still there actually, but is part of the Celtic Manor complex. And the Maindee in question was the Newport one.

    Six years later, I was a cardiffian, and not too happy about it, still got a bit of the accent.

    Crazy how this place got absorbed into the Celtic manor, I recognise the outline. It's super haunted too apparently
