Barbridge - a Memory of Barbridge.
I can remember visiting my grandparents at Barbridge as a small child. In the early 60's my grandparents name was Poole and they lived in the end house nearest to the pub. Grandad worked for British Waterways and the garden went straight up to the canal. The people next door were called Bunn and I think Mr Bunn worked with my grandad - Mr Bunn had a daughter called Sandra. My grandad had an accident at work when I was 3 and unfortunately did not survive. I can remember running up the road to the shop as a small child and remember the house that my grandparents lived in very well. My grandma lived at the house with my aunt until the end of the 70's or early 80's. My grandma and aunt Minnie went to live in Nantwich after grandma had a bad fall and coulnd no longer live in the house.
