From on high

Here’s an interesting old photo from the air of old Abergele. A few things to note…

The old police cell is there next to the chapel.
The old warehouse is there in all its glory. The mill is obscured.
The chapel’s row of cottages next to the playing fields han’t yet been built. Neither had Gele Ave. There are lots of empty fields behind the Gwindy.

A fascinating photo from Mark Roberts and Mark Baker’s excellent book
