I'm hoping you can help me in my search for pictures and history of the Old Court Hotel in AvonCliffe. My Grandparents worked in the Hotel. My mother was born in Wiltshire in 1926, and lived with her parents in the hotel from birth to age 12. My Mom does not have any pictures of the Hotel, so I would like to be able to find those for her, as well as the history about it.

My earliest known ancestor was a Wm Bayly b.1530-35, a broadloom weaver, lived in Chittoe (near Westwood), Bishop's Cannings Parish (at that time, now Bromham Parish), Wiltshire. I can find no indication of any of his ancestors in Wiltshire. The Bayly Bayley Baily Bailey Baillie Baylie name is said to have come from Bailleul (West Flanders), then Balliol (as in Balliol College, Oxford)

My Grandad used to work for the Royal Enfield factory in Bradford on Avon. Many of the bikes were stored in the various mines in the Bradford area including Westwood. Could you tell me anything about the history of these mines and why they were dug?
