Email your history questions about Brierley and the surrounding area to Richard Watson

a local historian and co author of "Brereley a history of Brierley" e


 "In many years spent researching my booklet ‘Brereley a History of Brierley’ published in 1974 and now available on the internet, I built up an extensive archive of documents relating to the Brierley area. Much of it unused in the booklet. This has helped me to advise quite a few people on questions of local and family history. Pages on my web site relating to the Beatrice Tomasson at Burntwood and the Wood House known as Sidlow’s at Grimethorpe are an example of what can be achieved. I do not undertake research that cannot be completed at home, but can advise where further information may be found’. I look forward to receiving your questions."

     May I make it clear that this web site (Brierley Village) is run by Gary and that I am a researcher with my own web site 'Brierley Yorkshire England' which you may access by clicking the link.
