I have very early memories of visiting my grandmother (my dad's mother) in Whitburn. It's taken me a while to find the address, but I think it was 14 Cleveland View. My memories are a bit vague, I was very young, but I remember being fascinated by the shutters on the windows. Does anyone know the house?
This lane has mixed memories for me, I've enjoyed some of my happiest moments running down the lane to the park at the bottom and some of the worst walking out of the church after funerals of the people I loved most but one things for sure this is one of the many pretty places in a very pretty village that always makes me smile and proud of the fact that I was born and bred here.
I used to live at 8 John Street. It was an unmade road with an assortment of housing. I would have been about 5 so my memories are fuzzy and vague. Would anyone have a copy of an old street street map of Whitburn for round about this time showing this street? The street has long gone and been replaced with better housing. I remember the outside loo across the yard at the back.
