History and Heritage

St. Catherine's Church
Upper Brynamman

On July 10th 1940 at about mid-day a bomb was dropped by a German aircraft. It landed in the middle of the churchyard to the south of the church building causing damage to the roof and windows. The walls although they took the force of the blast were not damaged. This also saved the school and luckily the children were all inside having lessons.
