My grandparents, Sam and Eliza Mary Warwick were caretakers in the late 1920's and early 30's and my mother Betty was born in the caretaker's house in the back on a day in March 1929 when it was so hot that the grass in the field caught fire.

I use to walk past this building everyday on my way home from school in the mid 80s (oulton Junior school) infact in 1997 it was the first time I was old enough to vote, and yes I voted Labour in there sorry Im sure it wasnt all my fault, they have been in a while now.
