The photos on this page provided by and with kind permission of Mr D. Vaughan who was born in the village in 1952 living at 1 Welfare Ave but moved away in 1966. He is able to trace his family on his mother's side (Howells) back 800 yrs i.e. 12th century (see bottom of page) when they farmed at Cilcarn farm, which overlooks the Cwmavon Valley. They would there for have a claim to being one of the oldest families in Bryn.                  Pictured above Bryn Bowls club. late 50's/60's
