Twyn School. At the time of this photograph, Twyn was a senior school (i.e. 11-15 year old), but this building later became the Junior School, with an Infants School on the same site, and the Senior School was relocated to the Gwyndy School on Pontygwyndy Road.

This is actually a footpath (which still exists) linking Nant-y-calch Farm to the area locally known as 'The Clay Pits'--the area south of the Wernddu brickworks.
