Gerry I's taft tek issue. Peggy Beawt Yed could be found at Dairy Pit (which was actually the Bridge Pit) at New Springs. She was a close neighbour of Nanny Green Teeth on the Old Arm.

You Know DK just to the left of this picture (out of shot)there was a further residence built onto this hall I used to deliver papers to it very early mornings, I were frikund dee-uth, one night the lad who lived there had a ouija board and a gang of us tried to conact "Peggy Beawt Yed" she never turned up. So maybe tha reet maybe 'er did live in New springs.
If tha gus deawn Ince dont tell the locals that she lived i'new Springs cos we were all very proud of her living in Ince... I wonder if she did a flit??? Beawt telling us?

I lived in Ince Hall whilst going to Belle Green School and then to Rose Bridge, we loved living in the Hall, which was converted into 2 flats and the ends were known as Cottages. From first moving into Ince Hall we were told about Kitty Beawt Yed, that she used to walk up and down the dirt track road between the fields which was the only access up to the Hall. This would have been about 1964 when we moved there.
