Activity Three - Imaginative Writing

Imagine that you were born in the Blaenavon area in about 1785, before the industry and town were built. You moved away to live in England when you were about 10 years old, and you had never returned to Wales since.

Now in 1842, you are an old man or woman and you have come back to spend your last years in the place of your birth.

Write a letter to a friend or relative and explain to them how the place has changed and what you feel about these changes.
