Attended in the 60's. Mr Yates was the headmaster. Mrs Cork and Mrs Lucas were the top junior teachers. Mrs Hamilton taught the reception class. Remember Vicar Lane teaching a session every Friday morning about the church. Good old fashion discipline was the order of the day.Link to School

@ Brendan

You are a bit confused here Brendan, the Running Horses was at the bottom of Liverpool Road where it met Bridge Street and was in front of Windle Pilk School and next to the old Tyrers shop. I don\'t remember a pub in Raglan Street but maybe you are thinking of the Feathers on the corner of Eccleston Street and Westfield Street. There were a lot of streets between Raglan Street and Liverpool Road which also ran parallel

confused now, thought Ravenhead Hall/House was the same place. in a link i found it is referred to as both & says it passed through the hands of several Ravenhead glass industrialists before it ended up as offices for Pilkingtons. my great great grandparents met while living there. http://www.suttonbeauty.org.uk/suttonhistory/sutton_halls_houses/#ravenheadLink to Street/Place

History of Sherdley Colliery (1870s - 1944), by Stephen Wainwright on the Sutton Beauty website.

I think that my G Grandfather John Henry Bennett was a manager at that pit in its time.
