    Being brought up in Sutton Junction the Monastery was a cut through either going/coming back from Sutton High School or going/coming back from friends,on a nearly daily basis at the time in the 80's It's all changed now with new build houses thats taken over the old building where the Monks lived. I remember every time i cut through the path past the Church on my pushbike/walking alone or with friends past the Monastery building i always was cautious and looked up spotting Monks peeping through the windows.They would watch but when looking up and spotting them they would bob down..verrry eerie. Here is some pictures i got the other evening... Now as far as i remember this was called Monastery Lane?

    Martin Murray invited me for this photo opportunity yesterday as footballer Steven Gerrard called in his shop. Also Martins friend Rocky Fielding who is a super middleweight champion was there.

    I think it was basically same as today, there was lack of work and that meant extreme poverty, the Irish were coming here competing for those jobs / resources and would work for less and live in the worst areas added 2 minutes later The original 1861 and 71 censuses in St Helens are in a terrible state, Ancestry refused to film them so if you're missing someone off those then that is why

    Me too, Ollie. I shake my head at what happens next door to us. There is a family of three girls aged 16, 13 and 11. They have a back-garden that covers an area 70 yards by 40 yards with a few quite mature beech, sycamore and oak trees. The area is full of wildlife - rabbits, hedgehogs, squirrels, occasional fox and numerous birds. We only see the girls in their garden when they have visitors and they all go into the garden to squeal in mock terror at things. Apart from that, they spend their entire school holidays holed up in their bedrooms, according to their dad who shakes his head in bewilderment at them, playing on their tablets and other gadgets

    There was a lot of hostility to the Irish in the 19th Century. Part of it was down to religion. In most parts of the UK (less so perhaps in rural Lancashire) Roman Catholicism was perceived with the suspicion that many apply to Islam today. If you read the social history of the time, you can find lots of stuff about this.

    I lived in my grandfathers house in St Helens as a child and grandfather refused to let census people or officials in the house when I was young. He was first generation English (his parents moved here from Ireland mid 1880's) but old habits and ingrained attitudes to officialdom were part and parcel of life. Most of our neighbours and relatives behaved similarly. They'd nothing to hide criminally (well perhaps a few had...) but it was more a way of life carried over from Ireland to protect themselves from the hostilities of the time. Basically census forms and the like were ignored or falsely filled in (their surname was deliberately altered) to suit their perceived needs. It was only when the last census of 1901 was released that I found out for certain which part of Ireland they came from.

    Not everyone co-operated with the officials; sometimes because they had something to hide, sometimes just for the sake of being awkward. You still see these attitudes today, which is why many people (for example) are not registered to vote. OTOH, sometimes people were simply "away" on the day, perhaps on business, on holiday, or visiting relatives. So they could show up on the census somewhere else. Anywhere from Wigan to Chipping Sodbury.

    Sometimes people won't be found if they are traveling or if they don't answer the door or their last name has been somehow changed by the person who was transcribing the census. I have found that alot in the US census's.

    Yes I remember the Bentley as well.He sold a product known as Porzelack car polish and used to say "that,s what I use on my car".Champion spark plugs were 5/- each or 25p each. Duckhams,and Castrol GTX was about 25/- for a gallon can.And you could park outside the shop as well!.

    just as an aside.we see many films of pilots, seamen on rafts My late father in law was torpedoed in the indian ocean.There were a small number of other merchantmen on the raft.They survived for over 40 days on the raft.When found they had to be hospitalised in Mauritius. The details and other Japanese atrocities of merchantships torpedoed etc are covered in a book called i believe.Blood and the Bushido.Its so easy for filmakers to make the scenarios with the supporting actors but harder to define the true scenarios..

    iv had my dna tested and I'm 55% irish , 31% scandanavian and 14% other regions , I have 3 shared ancestor hits and 55 4th cousins or closer , its quite irritating because a lot of people don't have a tree on there or just don't reply to your messages , iv confirmed the ancestor hits and added them to my tree but its not the link that I am looking for , also I have irish on my maternal and paternal side one side duffy one side neary and carr and a lot of irish people have all these names in their tree and a lot of the users are irish American so they don't know much about their ancestors before they came to America which is the same here so really its done me no good but I don't think iv wasted my money and iv actually just bought one for my granddad as he is the oldest in the family to see if I can get better results from him . oh the good thing about doing your dna is you can download your raw dna data and you can upload it to other sites for free such as GEDcom which will let you look at each segment of dna and has different programmes you can run you dna through , I also uploaded mine onto my heritage and family tree dna and my ethnicity differed on each test . nat

    Going back to Oct 15 thereabouts it was mentioned in the Star the air raid shelter beside the water works in Prescot and the possibility of demolition, I passed this morning and sometime within the past 2 weeks it has, all the ground has been cleared, the old tower is to remain standing I believe, the property on the end looks far more presentable.

    Hello James, I have said this to myself, many of times, the 'main' caves and the area around the site must have entrances, what takes you in deeper or even reveal new info on the matter of crank.

    There's a tunnel running under Borough Road that's accessible from the backs of Duncan Street. It's mentioned in a thread here: http://www.sthelens-connect.net/forums/topic/70601-around-sthelens/?p=562086 You might have to go to the bottom of Duncan St and up behind the houses if there's an alley gate blocking the route I marked on the map.

    I rediscovered Bourne's tunnel back in 1991 and took photo's which have been shown on dozens of social media sites without any credit to me of course. Incidentally, H Darby, I was a miner from 1962 and a tunneller with various tunnelling companies from 1966. I also worked on the second Mersey Tunnel.

    The site is fenced in and locked. You'd need a couple of ladders to get over the wall and railings. There is a sneaky way in, but I wouldn't risk it, as it could be classed as trespassing, you may cause some damage.

    Isn't Bernie Clifton from St. Helens? (The guy with the Emu/Ostrich puppet thing that he 'rode') Ray French taught at Cowley Boys, John Mantle taught at Rivvy Seniors and I think that I heard that Colin Welland taught at Cowley Boys as well. Anybody know of any more famous St.Heleners? We must be able to do better than this!!!!! Ollie
