Brampton Bierlow - a Memory of Wombwell.
Grandad was a Winder at Cortonwood Colliery. Lived at 53 Knollbeck Lane.Well known for his model railway in the garden. Variously known as Joe, Job and sometimes Alfred Job Wright.
My Dad Sidney now gone some ten years since. Well known model maker.
Memories of Traction Bus turning round in junction opposite, walks to Elsecar which always involved a 'whittling stick'! Also just down the road was 'DANIELS' shop. Everything you could want and the best Dandelion and Burdock ever.
Any bells ringing?
John Wright. Now residing in 'leafy' Retford.
