    path from ship inn to carr mill

    If you go towards Carr mill, the cottage was between slitty mill and the bridge where the stream passes underneath from left to right. It was still there in the late 1940s. On the o.s.six inch map it's shown with P beside it. I think this is the symbol for a well with a hand pump.

    Paddy's Ackle

    I remember that pond it was quite deep and had a lot of big perch in it. I think it was a storage resevoir for the chemical works known as Paddy's blunder. The stream from the Ship inn to Carr mill had fresh water mussels in it, and there was a cottage half way along the path.

    Lancashire Census

    Maybe St. Helens history society ( at Eccleston library ) would be interested in having them.

    Shaggy Mushroom

    Was that little park the Quaker graveyard? Are the burials still there or were they removed.

    Fleet lane chippy

    I think it was owned by the Eddleston family, when it closed they moved to Gaskell st.
  6. I seem to remember seeing men walking around in donkey type jackets, with a yellow circle about 10 inch diameter on the back. I was told they were p.o.w. allowed out of camp.

    Try the O.S. maps England & Wales 6 inch to the mile 1842- 1952. Click the find by place box, and enter St Helens, and then click the grid square for the area you want, it will turn blue, and a list of maps will be shown on the rhs. Choose the one you want, and zoom in to Parr Mill.

    The 1894 O.S. map shows Littler's court at the junction of Feet lane and Derbyshire hill rd.

    Things you don't see anymore

    You don't see Aunts and Uncles with Nephews and Nieces, that older than them. When I was at school there was a lad in the same class as his Uncle.

    Quarry Pond near Sherdley Park

    I recall seeing this pond in the score, when it was drained prior to being filled in. It looked as if it was an old quarry, about 40ft deep with vertical sides.

    1915 conscription

    I thought that there would be lists of persons liable for conscription. Which would be handy when searching for locations of people. Many men appealed against their conscription, are there any records of the results of these appeals?
  14. Are these registers available to the public.
  15. Foll Doll row chancery lane. There are some photos on the gallery.
