Tim Sunter's family history

A web log of my family history research

1964ish holidays at New Quay in Wales on what is now the Quay West caravan site

In the summers the West Midlands used to decamp down to New Quay in Wales. This film shows the Hengell Caravan site with shots across the bay to the town itself. The site is now the Quay West Holiday resort.

The shots have Fred outside the family caravan, Jen riding on her bike, our dog Lassie being walked by Tim with Jen holding David Richie and Chris Richie playing cricket.

The other families I remember are the Andrews who had a steel factory in Stourbridge; Baldwin; Richie; Loverock who owned the garage in Brierley Hill. The Griffiths family had a caravan on the top field.
