The photo above is of Harvey Brown and his workmates, Harvey  is centre front row wearing a  tie.

There were many stoneworkers in the area, and quite a few quarries, the previous two pages are mainly dealing with the actual quarries and how the stone was used locally, this page has been inspired by Margaret Heyday who very kindly sent along the photo above.

Margaret tells us that her Great Grandfather was called Harvey Brown, born in Tickhill approx 1855. He married Emma Saunders their children were
George born 1877
Annie born 1880

Ida born 1886

Frank born 1890 my Grandfather, later school caretaker at Wickersley council School, after living High St. Bramley and Flanderwell Av. Bramley
