Smallthorne Memories by Gwyneth Harding (nee Walley)

I have lots of memories of Smallthorne, my Great-grandparents moved to Smallthorne from Biddulph at the turn of the last century and lived in Derby Street. My Great-grandfather , James Walley, worked in the pits. My Great-uncle, his Christian name slips my mind at the moment, but I have him documented in my family history but he too was a Walley, became the station master at Ford Green Junction. My Grandparents, Ralph and Eirewen Walley were married at St Saviour’s Church and lived in Heath Street, where my father was born in 1939.
