Albrighton photos
« on: Saturday 27 November 04 12:39 GMT (UK) »
Dear All,
            I am trying to put together some stuff on my Albrighton family and would love some photos of the area. It's difficult for me to get there living in London as I do and was wondering if anyone had any good photos old or contemporary of the town stored on their hard drive. I do not want anyone to go to great lengths for me just if they had something handy.

Many thanks, Michelle

Hello Michelle

Do you mean Albrighton just on the north side of Shrewsbury?  If so, I live just down the road and would be willing to take some photos for you.

Let me know what area you are interested in!!!!

Dear Jan,
              Thanks so very much for your response and kind offer, but it is actually the Albrighton in between Shifnal and Codsall.

              Thanks once again for offering to help.
All the best, Michelle

What a shame  :(

Although I have lived in Shrewsbury all my life, I am not at all familiar with Shifnal, Codsall, Albrighton etc.  Of course I have heard the names but that's about it :-\

Sorry :-[
