I was born in Corby 1966, my Dad worked at York trailers then onto Stewarts & Lloyds. I was born in 9, Croyde Avenue up in Exeter estate, went back ther when i was 15 yrs old to see Corby and the house that i was born very emotional i can say. My hometown is Stonehaven up in the North east of Scotland beside Aberdeen. We also stayed at linton grove but i was not born then . Many people from the North east went to Corby to work in the 60's as there was no work up north. My Dad is stil lliving (83) young and we still speak about the Corby days in which i cannot remember.

Lucky in life i have worked in the oil & gas sector all over the world and reside in Thailand now and nearing my retirement, i'm 50 on my next birthday and i'm still proud that i'm born in Corby and i'll never forget that . Would like to go back someday just too see what it looks like .
