Dear Gary
I came across your site only yesterday and have to say it is very good indeed. I have not been back to the village for years, however I have been in contact via E-mail with John Draper in the past year. I have now settled in Lincolnshire and work as a projects manager (mechanical engineering) on various petro-chemical refineries and plants around the UK and Europe. It was good to see the old photographs of not only the village but the school classes, the faces and names certainly jog the old memory, I think I recall some of the missing names on Mrs Thorpe's class of 565/57: Back row could that be Craig Blackshaw? Bottom Row (Lawton's) could they be Peter Lawley and Susan Lawley??? Who lived on Cross-hill across from my Grandmother Lillian Lynch. I have not looked at all the site yet but will keep in touch and send any old photographs if I can find them
Best regards and keep up the good work

Hi Pete

Thank you for your very interesting email Pete. I do remember you from my younger days in Brierley. I was your Lynnís age but probably you donít remember me.  I would appreciate any photographs that you may have. At present we have about 1,200 in the archives with at least 600 of them being pr 1969. Perhaps you could send us photographs of your days in Brierley and you and your family now to add to the web site.
