I was born in the Bridge Inn, Main Street, Brough, Westmorland, on December 6, 1927. My mother recalls the weather to have been very stormy with heavy falls of snow. My father, William Norman Stell, was the manager of the inn & the licencee was his mother, Elizabeth Ann Stell. My mother was Sarah Martha Stell & had two other sons, John Walter Stell & William Norman Stell ,aged 6 & 4, who went to the local school. My father was a talented pianist & also ran a band. We moved to Durham City in 1930 where my father & mother were stewards of the Conservative Club.
In both photographs the very substantial building on the left is clearly the Bridge Inn. I am very grateful to have these photograhs to add to my family history portfolio.
