Having found your website, my parents ran the Grotto Vaults”.


My parents were George and Meg Greathead , both now deceased.  The Grotto was next to a factory called I think, Wilmott Breeden, and ran the pub from about 1958. It was on the right hand side going down the street before you got to the school.


My siblings were Gina, Margaret, Hilary, Leonard and Tony, who sadly passed away last November. Maybe someone will remember.


Mrs. Muriel Thresher, nee Greathead
