    By woodsman,
    Came across the above site through Google.  Interesting especially if one has a relative who may have been an estate worker etc.  Not all houses have images but there is a good selection, plus of course someone may have a postcard or pic which could be useful to the site.

    I take it this was at the Beechams end where the Brook was right? Do we have any images? One of my lot was chucked in there for working in a strike, he was a manager/foreman though so.....scally who did it got fined 40/- though so probably went to prison.
