Marcia added: "... With this one I wonder whether anyone recognizes the house?. I’d love to know where it is. A lot of the people in this photo are my mother’s ancestors and I think it was taken in the early 1890’s because of the baby in the centre and my grandmother as a young girl, far right. I don’t know whether I’m related to all of them or whether they are a church group, so if anyone knows anything, that would be wonderful. My grandmother’s family attended the congregational church in Drybrook and lived in the house right on the bridge at Nailbridge which still stands today. I seem to remember it was called Nethy House".
