Park House
The front of Park House, Park Place, Crosskeys. Ken and Bette moved here from their first house in Pontllanfraith. It was nearer the Wallace Jones business HQ in Abercarn. Although Park House was in the middle of terraced houses where we had many friends, it also backed onto woods and was above Crosskeys Farm, so there was plenty of scope for adventure. The canal was on one side of the valley (sticklebacks and tadpoles) and the river Ebbw on the other. Mountains on both sides easily accessible. Our School, Crosskeys Infants and Juniors was a safe five minute walk away.
