Beryl and Tosca - 1957
The strict regime had slackened off a lot by the time Beryl Rowlands was in. She says they used to go and catch the ponies belonging to Dr Williams' two daughters and ride them using dressing gown sashes as halters!...
"We got caught in a thunderstorm once and got soaked. We had a row when we returned to the ward," says Beryl.
Now a retired deputy headmistress of a big primary school Beryl has offered to write her own account of her memories of her days in Craig-y-nos, something that I am encouraging ex-patients to do if they wish.
Very amused to see my old pony Tosca. Obviously being ridden while i was at boarding school! From Mary(Nee Ivor William
