Bryn Coch, Welshpool
« on: Monday 06 October 08 15:04 BST (UK) »
My family's address early in the 20th century was just as shown - Bryn Coch, Welshpool. I have several postcards which show this as the address, and a photo of them standing on the steps of what looks to be quite a sturdy house.

Has anyone any idea how I could find out more about the location of Bryn Coch? I've tried the usual "modern methods" and there's nothing of that name recognised in Welshpool; I think I need a streetname to help my search.

Thankyou :)

Hi

It looks as if it's in Blue Bell drive, Welshpool:

I used the Royal Mail portal and selected postcode search

Added - it looks a fairly modern road - just wondering if it's a new name and the old one disappeared  :-\

Thanks, Gadget

As you say, that looks like a new development but the main road by is Red Bank so it's probably in the right area.

Maybe I need to take a trip to Wales!
