Margaret and David writing their memories in a book. They are particularly researching the history of the Royal Hotel and we look forward to reading what they have written and hearing more from them.

Becky recording as Alan tells her all about the goods yard, that was where Ethelwynne Brown Close is now. The book is Branch Lines To Torrington, which has a clear photo of the goods yard and used to explain where the buildings etc were.
