Childhood Visits

A Memory of Brindley Ford

My father were born in Brindley Ford in 1911. His father was born 1881 and his mother in 1880. My grandparents moved to West Yorkshire around 1912. Consequently we visited family in Brindley Ford
I don't remember a great deal about Brindley Ford except for the rows of houses, the school and the Pit stacks(?).
I do remember the later years visiting family in Fegg Hayes
As I am working on my family Tree I would love to find some old photographs of this village where my grandparents and father originate from. Can anyone help please/

If you go online to Staffordshire Sentinel, put Brindley Ford in their search and look for the pictures section there are lots of old pictures of Brindley Ford and Fegg Hayes. I hope this is helpful
