I received the following photograph from George Bannister and shows George's Grandmother Caroline Bannister (Left) and the lady on the right is Mrs Hird. George does not know the lady in the middle. Not sure where it was taken or what time of year it was but they all had big coat on.


The following photograph is of my mothers Uncle Nicholas who used to live at 28 Handel Terrace. He was always working in his garden or in his greenhouse whenever we went to see him. His son was killed at the pit when he was only 14 years old in 1928. His accident report information is on this web site. His daughter Jean still lives in the village.



If anyone has further information on these pictures please contact me at
