Station Road

Looking up Station Road from its junction with the main Wrexham-Chester road in the centre of the village. The pub to the left, "The Alyn", standing on the bank of the River Alyn (off to the left), served the local Soames' Welsh Ales but the road sign points to the alternative "Cocoa Rooms"! The spire in the distance is that of the Rossett Presbyterian Church of Wales.

Chester Road

"Writing on the back is from my great aunt, Eveline Frances Price of Weston House, Gresford, to her brother (my grandfather) Frederick Andrew Price in Geelong, Australia. I suspect this is 1920s or 1930s. 'I think this is the house you went to school at Rossett when you were a small boy - I expect you will remember walking down under the station at Gresford and calling to see Mrs W Ellis for bread and butter with sugar".

Rossett Mill

"Writing on the back is from my great aunt, Eveline Frances Price of Weston House, Gresford, to her brother (my grandfather) Frederick Andrew Price in Geelong, Australia. I suspect this is 1920s or 1930s. 'I think this is splendid view of Rossett Mill. It now belongs to Mrs Lewis and she and he son work it. They live on Marford Hill and have a large farm, which another son looks after. They have one son at Coddington Mill, Nr. Chester and another a farmer near Bangor on Dee'.

"Writing on back from my great-aunt Eveline Price of Weston House, Gresford, to her brother Frederick in Australia. 'Mr. Trevor Boscawen still lives here, you will remember his father Capt. Boscawen. It is a beautiful old house inside and out there is a courtyard in the middle. Rossett Flower Show is still held there and Mrs. Boscawen senior is over eighty years old, gave the prizes away a few weeks ago.'". (Contributed by Graham Price)
