Question about Thatch Cottages in Willaston

Letter to the Editor from Mike Pugh, Willaston
I have been researching my family for about 5 years. There was a row of Thatch Cottages in Hadlow Road where generations of my family lived. Their exact location was the patch of land next to the Wine Store which has recently closed down, and the house Meadow View.
I can remember them myself, though they became derelict and were demolished around 1960/70 I think. I have photos of them in their derelict state which are reproduced below.
I would be interested if anybody has any information about, or photos of these cottages. I am also happy to share my research about my ancestors who lived in the cottages if others are interested. I and two of my brothers still live in Willaston present day.
If you have any information or photos to share with Mike, please contact us and we will forward your correspondence to him, or you can leave a comment below.
