We have not farmed in generations, they moved back and came to the cities. Mostly they took up mining or steel work, in fact my father was the last of our family to work down a pit. My great great great grand father married a welsh girl who had moved up to Scotland with her family. He eldest did the same, married a welsh girl who came up to scotland! so we have some welsh blood in us! My uncle Jimmy was a mine manager at a training pit and he took me down on my 16th birthday and when we came back up, he told me "That will be the last time you ever go down a pit"!
