Memories of Brookwood

Lock Keepers Cottage

In this photo, there is a cafe in the background. This house used to be the lock-keeper's cottage, owned by my great-grandparents. My mother used to play on a derelict barge opposite the house on the canal. Are there any Webbs still in Brookwood that remember Ted and Gert Webb, my grandparents?
