Whitehaven - a Memory of Whitehaven.
I have not been to Whitehaven yet, I hope to write a memory this coming year 2017.
My great grandfather George Hudspeth was born (1863) in the area of Claytor Moor,.
My g.grandfather came to Nottingham when he was 20 years old .
His father Thomas was a railway engine driver.
So as time goes on the Railway starts to build and so did the work, and George worked as a Plate layer on the railway in Nottingham.
So it is for me now to go and see the place where he lived.
