Chris Helme - Brighouse Heritage
Death of Respected Clifton Author Margaret Sharp

Margaret Sharp, who died recently, was a local historian and author with an exceptional knowledge of the history of Clifton. She was someone I had known for many years and when ever I needed to find an answer to some detailed and often fairly obscure piece of history about Clifton village or some of its residents from the distant past she was the first person I turned to for help. Her knowledge of the village was almost encyclopedic.

Were any of these relatives of yours? Where they were rehoused after these properties is not known.
