A Memory of Broken Cross

I was born in Broken Cross and went to the old infant school when Mrs. Richards, Miss Lomax and Mrs. Frith were the teachers there. I seem to remember school concerts being held round the corner in a building just before the start of Gawsworth Road. When I was small the Post Office was in one of the cottages on the hill going down into the village but the counter was too high for me to see over. The newsagent's shop was kept by Mr. and Mrs. Dale. On Sundays we walked up to Henbury Church where I was later married when Rev. Jones was the Vicar.
