I have fond memories of visiting my Grannie Graham, who lived in the miners rows. My Aunt Grace lived in Breith for years, she was actually the gala queen years roughly 1938. She was married to Jock Willkinson, had a daughter Agnes and two sons James and Graham. If anyone remembers them let me know.
