You are spot on Sally, they are the four cottages at Hardy Green that are owned by the Sheldon family. I lived at the second one.

Hello Sally, Derek Beard lived in Brook Bottom Cottages, next to the Chapel. Derek could have been at school with you, but I don't think I was.

Right thanks. I have a memory of someone living at the bigger house further on than these cottages - obviously memory playing me up. I was at school with Pauline and Diane knew Pauline's brother, John and Diane's brother too but can't remember his name. Diane's father was ace. He took us up the back of his place to go 'swimming' in the stream. Obviously never, ever told my parents as the polio scare was under way lol

Hello again Sally. The bigger house that you recall was where Alan and Winnie Fidler, and son Nigel lived.
Diane's brother was Robert, but sadly, both he and John, my half cousins have died.
