Dent View, Egremont Christine Richards - a Memory of Egremont.

My parents moved from London to a prefab at 59 Dent View in Egremont when I was about 2 years old in 1949/50 my brother and sister were both born in Egremont. My memory is of our next door neighbours with the surname Hurrell I was friends with Pamela Hurrell I think they had two girls and a boy and I remember their dog. My friends were also Elaine and Estelle Singh who also lived in Dent View and their little brother who drowned in the River Ehan. I left Egremont in 1956/7 and moved back to London.

I too moved to Dent View Egremont when I was about 2 yrs old, (1949-50 ish), from Ulverston. My mother apparently loved the new prefab as it had all the mod cons of the day. I believe my father, David Farish, worked at Sellafield at the time. I have only fleeting memories of little significance. We moved to New Zealand in 1951. Both my parents have died and I do not know the street number of our old home.
Thanks for your story Christine. Peter Farish
