Description:Mr and Mrs Deakin (nee Shroebridge) lived in a railway cottage right next to the railway line at Town Hills near Stockton Common, Baswich. Mr Deakin worked on the railways as a linesman for that stretch of the railway track. The Deakins later moved to Queensville in Stafford. Mrs Deakin’s father 'Old' Mr Shroebridge was Lady Salt's trap driver at Walton-on-the-Hill. When Lady Salt bought a motorcar he was no longer required and Mr and Mrs Shroebridge became caretakers at Stafford Girls’ High School.
