First correct answer came from Mrs Lynn Roberts of Gordon Avenue, who was on this blog last week objecting to Denbighshire council’s intention to take trees away from her street. That battle continues.
Mr Gareth Roberts was another who came up with the right answer and thinks he recalls that there were cottages on the Vale Road site before the gardens. You may well be right, Gareth – thanks for getting in touch.
WED 15th JUL 2009 UPDATE: A message has arrived from reader George Owen who says, “The seat on Vale Road was the site
of two very old one-storey cottages, and on the wall behind the seat you can still the V-shaped mark of the pitched roof where it was butted against the old chapel. I remember a friend who lived there, Nigel Millington. He now lives in Canada.”
