Drang mystery: some ideas

Regarding the word drang . At the beginning of the war, I resided with my parents, sister and brother at Broad Park Road, Withycombe.

Regarding the word "drang". At the beginning of the war, I resided with my parents, sister and brother at Broad Park Road, Withycombe.

There were six steps up to the houses and then onto a covered passage way, leading to the back entrances to both properties.

This passage way was called a "Drang". A most useful place, where the children could play in the dry, whatever the weather. So Drang was the name given to this passage way.

I have never heard the name since but hope this will be useful to those concerned.
