Gran & Grandad's House - a Memory of Victoria Garesfield.
Mam was born in Victoria Garesfield, the houses I can remember have now been demolished. In later years they lived in School Houses where there were about four converted bungalows. My grandad worked in nearly all the local pits, his name was Robert Atkinson, I believe he was born in the village. My gran was called Phobe May (Ward), Mam was called Jeam May, her twin is called Betty. John was their brother.All are alive and well. I recently drove past the area, how it has changed, all overgrown. Mam would like to hear of any old friends.
