Hello, I don't know how easy it is for you to get to either Bridgend or the Garw Valley. Bridgend Family History Library, which is in the same bungalow style building as the Registrars Office behind Sunnyside; have OS maps, perhaps the 25" to a mile of Pantygog/Pontycymmer may have Landore Cotts. shown. Another way is to take a look at the fronts of existing houses and see if any indication is carved above the door or on a street sign that has been overlooked. There are many such individual terraces that have become merged into larger rows.
They were the first four (or possibly six) wooden huts type houses at the top of Fenton Place on the left hand side as you commence walking down the hill. They were also at the junction of Gloucester Buildings where the demolished petrol garage once stood. My Great, Great Grandfather, John Jones lived there for a while. They were known as Landore Huts.
Magsvs. I have found a newspaper clipping, Glamorgan Gazette.dated 19 Sept. 1919. MISSING GARW GIRL. A young girl, Edith Fox, LLandore Cottages, Pontycymmer, has been missing since Friday. She is of a fair complexion, light hair, blue eyes, and has a mark on her cheek. When she left the house Friday, she was wearing a green dress, trimmed with red. She had black laced boots, and woolen stockings, and was hatless. The girl has only been in the district a fortnight, and previous to that live at Deansgate, Manchester.
In the following weeks paper was this?
MISSING GIRL FOUND. 25th Sept.1919. On Monday news as received from Manchester that Edith Fox aged 15, of Llandore Cottages, who had been missing for over a week had returned to Deansgate, Manchester, where she had resided before coming to Pontycymmer.
