Aston Hall Closure - NOW RE-OPENED


Re: Aston Hall Closure

Hi Col,
My mother used to take me to visit one of her relatives at the hall, we would have tea in one of the Lodges, I was under the impression that the relative lived in the lodge as a caretaker. I have no memory of names and the date would have been between 1943 and 1945ish, when I started school. My mother's name maiden name was Olive Lane and father Austin Lane. I can still the remember my echoing footsteps on the board floors as I ran around the empty place.
