My grandparents, Harrold and Rosa Brown (nee Page) lived at number 22 from the mid 1930s. Harrold died in 1968; Rosa continued to live at number 22 until about 1985. She then moved to a smaller house in Milton Road; she died in 1999. My mother, Betty Brown (now Arnold) and her sister Rita (now Hughes) both lived there all their lives until they left to get married. My sister and I spent many happy hours at 22 Ferry Path as children, it was a wonderful house.
