Welcome to the site editor

Members of the North Wales Hospital Historical Society travelled to the National

Library of Wales , Aberystwyth to receive a DVD copy of a film shot by the late Norman Brookes who was Senior Physiotherapist at the North Wales Hospital . The original 8mm film (dated 1965) was given to the Society by the Head Physiotherapist of Ysbyty Glan Clwyd.


The members were shown around the department where the work of restoring films is carried out. The department stores hundreds of films including the masters of famous films such as   ‘ Proud Valley ’(1940) and ‘ The Last Days of Dolwyn’(1949).



We had a great day and would like to thank John, Mark and Mary for their warm welcome.
