The fate of your school hat on leaving?
Leave a comment
The railway line to Dolgellau was close in 1963, a victim of the cuts by Dr Beeching. Up until then boarders would throw their hats from the train as they passed Bala lake on the day they left school. The route of the old line from Dolgellau to Barmouth is now the Mawddach Trail and makes for a great walk or cycle ride. The old Lady Bridge over the river Wnion,mentioned above, has been replaced.
I still have mine!
