    Wardleworths, a St Helens retail treasure

    Alan
    By Alan,
    Wardleworth's bookshop in Westfield Street is an absolute retail treasure. Not only do they have a massive range of titles, the staff are the bees knees in terms of knowledge and helpfulness, whether that be face to face, or in my case on Monday over the phone. Robbob had sparked my interest when he showed a picture of The Life and Times of a Peasley Cross Boy book. I phoned Wardleworhs, they still had a copy in stock, took payment over the phone and the book was here next day. If I still lived in St Helens I'd be in there every week

    A lady showed me this the other day,has anyone heard of it or Ernest Alan Molyneux? I don't bother reading books but i collect them..they are always there. She was telling me he is alive and well living up near Ashton and he even mentions in the book Johnny Welly being brought up in Cleveland St,Peasley Cross. Just a quick search on google i couldn't find it.   Pinch or zoom in to try and read,the back is worn.   The life and times of a Peasley Cross Boy F by Robbob 2010, on Flickr       The life and times of a Peasley Cross Boy B by Robbob 2010, on Flickr    

    Lord Beeching never managed to close Shaw Street station.

    Sometime in the early Sixties, Lord Beeching and the MacMillan Government decided that it would be a good idea to close the railway line that ran from Wigan North Western through Shaw Street station and on to Prescot and then Huyton. They failed because there was a big campaign against it. I remember bits about that campaign because I spent a lot of time in the evening going round collecting signatures for a petition. Does anybody remember or know more about that campaign.
