I'm researching my family and have come across a reference to a Catholic seminary for foreign missionaries in Newby Bridge. The person I'm tracing would have been there in the late 1920s. If anyone has knowledge of this place, I would greatly appreciate hearing about it. Thank you.

Can I ask if anyone remembers my mom's great aunt, Nellie Briscoe? She lived in a caravan in the 1950s-1960s, just by the bridge, Newby Bridge. She had two dogs, Carne Terriers, If anyone can remember her, would they get in touch, Garry.
