  1. I spent many holidays close to Sandy Lane. My grandmother Daisy Dearden lived in Sherrat Street, opposite a wonderful park with swings !
    i visited the area a good 20 years ago and a very kind lady who I asked in the Library, actually took me to the house, she had known my Grandmother, and my mother.
    Lovely memories.
