Edith Brough Home - a Memory of Whickham.
I remember delivering meat to the Edith Brough home for my father who was the manager of Charley Young at the time. I don't know why the children were there I thought they were the result of broken homes, marriages or orphans.I used to see them walking down Whaggs Lane to school.The main entrance to the home was at the junction of Whaggs Lane and Broom Lane as well as another entrance off Grange Lane.I,m afraid I don't know the names of any of the children.
