This article has been prompted by one of our members, Chris Bartley, who supplied copies of several photographs he took back in 1995. He used a 35mm camera without a zoom lens. The Navigation featured on one of the photographs and is shown below.

Prompted by this “find” our Secretary, Vera Jenkins, remembered a set of photographs that were rescued from a skip many years ago.
In 1994/1995 major changes to the small village of Crumlin were afoot. This would alter the layout of the roads and the area beyond recognition. Entitled the “Crumlin Village Highway Improvement” a series of photographs were taken over the two year period. Having been found in a skip it is remarkable that they have survived. It was therefore felt necessary to “preserve” them digitally for others to enjoy and they are shown in the album below.
We are not certain of copyright but all the pictures were taken by Brynmor Williams Photography of Cardiff. The pictures are not shown here for any commercial gain and we would not wish any of them to be copied or used for any commercial purpose whatsoever. Some of the quality of the pictures has been lost with time.
