Jim came to the village last Thursday & met Sheila & Geoff Thornton. He wanted to know if there was any one still living in the village that came from the cottage homes in Medomsley, that either worked in the mill or lived in the hostels’ run by Fosters.

Allen Woodhead and Jeffery Thornton.My father is 82 years of age and is planning a visit to Queensbury is it possible to ask if anyone knows if these gentlemen are still living in the area.It would be great for my dad to meet up on his visit.
