  7. Many thanks a charlesworth, this does help. I am researching my family history, happy to provide additional background, but would prefer to do so privately rather than on a public forum. I note that you do not have the "PM this member" option, is there any other way I can contact you?

  9. Thank you a charlesworth, I'm not from the area myself, but looking to research family who were. Interesting to hear (and see) what the area was like at the time though.

  11. Hello, I'm currently researching some family histories and would love to hear from anyone who lived in Meadow Lane (or surrounding area) mid to late sixties. Please PM me if you think you could help
