The lodge Brymbo
« on: Saturday 03 May 08 20:49 BST (UK) »
I wonder if any of you can help us.

We are looking for any old pictures/photographs of Kent road, the lodge Brymbo.  I have searched this site and found one picture which shows only part of our home taken from the old railway line.

If anyone can recommend links or places to visit this would be a great help. It would be nice to know some of the history of our home.

Thanks in advance.

Hi, At the moment I do not know where the pictures are of Lodge that I have got but you appear to be on the wrong site as Lodge is in Denbighshire not Flintshire and the address is Lodge near Brymbo not in Brymbo.  What year are you looking for.  Norma

Norma's correct - Lodge/Brymbo has always been in Denbighshire.

Here's a thread that mentions it. It might be worth contacting Polidor. I know she had some photos:

Thanks for your replies. I did notice that there was Wrexham in both denbighshire and flinshire so was not sure with sub forum to put this on.

Gadget yes I have seen that thread. The picture that mikedavies38 has put up shows part of our house (the one on the left with smoke coming out of the chimney).

We have been told that our house was built for the vicar, I can not say if this is correct or not. I have also seen pictures with a old post office and shops on the opposite side of the road sadly they are no longer there. Again we have been told these were there previously, but a local resident claimed this was not true.

We are currently renovating the house and trying to keep as much of the old character as we can. I thought it would be nice if we could obtain a photograph of our home back in the late 1800s or 1900s to put on the wall. And also to show our children what the village was like years ago.

It would be nice to see what was built around The lodge before they started to knock them down and of course the current building works that are in progress at the moment.  I might pop down to the museum tomorrow if its open and see what I can find there.

Also

Very rude of me, I forgot to welcome you to Rootsweb Rootschat  :)

I hope that we can help you find what you're looking for. I think the problem with the Denbighshire/Flintshire anomaly is that the Admin districts are now changed. The old Denbighshire (pre 1974), which is how the boards are arranged,  contained Brymbo.

Have all the steel works, etc. gone now? I've not been there since I was about 12  :-\

Hello

Cant really understand what is happening there seems to be some confusion when you tap into the site that I mentioned. Perhaps this might come up with the correct one.

owensaw.homestead.com/brymbo.html. Otherwise just type in  Brymbo  and it comes up .
