A story to listen to on the train from Darlington to Bishop Auckland

I never met my great grandmother Nora, but she hovers around the edges of my mother’s memory.

A tiny woman, she died when my mam was about 7. She remembers her baby teeth coming out at the time.

Nora's story is linked to the landscape that you travel through, as you take the train from Darlington to Bishop Auckland on the train.
