    I'm surprised there isn't a thread already for these but the match highlights for each round are always on the saints youtube channel a few days after a match even if they've not been televised by Sky and the superleague show is is always on at daft o'clock every week so I thought I'd start one from this season. Round one - Wigan (H) Rount two - Wakefield (A)

    I have thousands of pics on my 'puter Rob and I can remember most of them. This one was taken in 2015 when the George was up for sale. I just remember the lintel on top of the two doors that was painted in two different colors. Here is the photo.

    Thanks phyll some good pictures there of shaw street. I can’t believe how heavily overgrown the old sidings are now a days. Such a shame considering how busy shaw street goods yard used to be back in the day. The old Runcorn gap line that folks off at the end of the Liverpool bound platform is very overgrown to. Just think of all the destinations people could get to if the line to st.helens junction would have still be open today.

    Leaving it for so long hasn't helped it,something should have been done before now, after all they can find money to buy Church Square and loan money out to help other councils.

    Just thought I'd add these here, great war heroes, just like my Dad who I believe was in the 51st Highland Division in WW2, served in France, Belgium, North Africa, Italy and Germany. I wish he would have told me more about his service.

    Noting the mention of Haydock st. There is a row of properties linked together in Haydock st.There is a small set of steps that goes up to them. Pleasingly they have beeen renovated and I believe they now house small businesses? For some years in my memory there was a printing business housed below them. I wonder if any of the above resided in these same houses.Albeit there must have been other properties. But remembering these properties from my childhood .I believe ROBBOB put the selfsame properties on a foto link as well.

    It wasn't really your kids, I found that some of my ancesters where not, and you seemed very sure when you talk about going so far back and its a shame to do so much research and suddenly find it not what it seems.☺️

    A fascinating weird fact surfaced today. After my paternal grandfather's death in 1943 in Hertfordshire (related to things that'd happened in WW1) my grandmother met a man from St Helens who had been stationed down there after the end of the war - up to 1948. His name was William Duckworth. Having had five children with his previous wife he'd been widowed in 1946. I don't know who was looking after his kids, but he was down there in the army. Anyway, they met and married - pooling the kids (grandmother had 4) and they lived in one of the new council houses up at Windermere Avenue, Clinkham Wood. Then when my great grandfather died, grandmother received my grandfather's share and they bought a house on Laffak Road. There had been a little bit of resentment amongst the kids after having been dragged up north, but in reality William had rescued her from life on a measly pension. Anyway, here's the weird part (not really all that weird in the grand scheme of things), I wouldn't have existed if grandfather hadn't died and grandmother hadn't married this other bloke who had brought her up here - because dad wouldn't have met mum, and so on. But today I find that William was related to my mum (albeit a bit distant in 3rd cousin terms) via my Critchleys. OK, OK, boring for most, but I remember Pop (William) quite well - even though I was only nearly three years old when he died. (edit - it still works - via a slightly different route)

    As an ex employee of the EA.It still puzzles me how so many Recycling Businesses go up in smoke.All this hullabaloo years ago about SMOKELESS AREAS,EMMISSIONS etc? Never had any probs with the PLASTIC TRAYS being stored catching fire when we used to slide down the slopes back of Gaskell st when kids! Insuppose METAL must be more inflammable? A puzzler for us scientists?
