Grandparents - a Memory of Appleton-le-Street.

I often stayed in Appleton at my grandparents, Cissie and Bill Hollingsworth. Cissie was the cook at the Hall and Bill was the gardener. I used to get the bus from Norton where we lived. I went to whist drives with my grandma in neighbouring villages. I often wonder where the Ledgard sons are now. I think there were two sons. Grandma died in 1957 and granddad emigrated to New Zealand soon after.
