Hi there my family lived in skipton street from around 1915 onwards Murphys/Warnocks, I think they took up quite a lot of the houses in the street and lived there and Carnforth Street until 1980s whent he street was demolished.  Does anyone remember them??

Hi Ginger, Minnie warnock was my Great Granny and Annie is my Granny.  Oh and of Course Granny Murphy was my great Great granny, small world.  Did you know my dad Geordie as well he lived with his granny Minnie?  All my granny's children are still living except aunt Maggie who passed away in March this year.  I have been doing a family tree trace, so I have had a good hoke at where they all lived, it was hilarious they seemed to live in about 4 or 5 different houses in the street.  Do you have any old pics of the street - street parties etc?  I have one that one of my family had i must try and post it for you, still new to this so Ill have to work out how to add them.  If you have face book, we have a group called "A group off friends from the newtown albert beersbridge and woodstock roads", there are a few on it from the Newton and Albertbridge roads. you might enjoy the craic.  We have only started it yesterday, but already we have pics uploaded and about 100 members, would be great if you would join and share.  Ill try and post the pic I have  :)
