  1. We used to play in the barn when we were kids. Johnny Hurst would chase us but Mrs. Hurst used to say leave them alone they are only kids.
  2. My wife's Grandfather was born at 14 Mill Row in 1897, near the mill and went to school next to it.
  3. It was on his Vehicle Driving Licence.
  4. My dad got a speeding ticket for doing 11 mph on it and it wasn't officially opened.
  5. Mrs Banks lived there, as kids we used to call on the way back from Happy Valley. Always got a drink and a piece of cake from her, a lovely woman.
  6. Well Done Ted & the team on winning your award, well deserved.
  7. Raising the output stack will not get rid of the smell. It will only disperse it over a wider area. The only way to stop it is to close it down altogether.

    Muriel Rigby

    Sorry to hear that, RIP Muriel, condolences thyme to you and your family.
  9. Hi Tom, I knew Jim Pye very well. We both went to Merton Bank School and then on to Parr Central. Jim's dad was a keen Bolton Wanderers fan and on occasions would take us both to the match. We were all there the match before the tragedy on the terraces where we usually stood, for some reason we could not go to that match. I lost touch with Jim when we both started work as apprentices him at Holman Mitchell and me at BICC. Met up again years later when he moved into Reeve Court Village. Sadly Jim died of Cancer last year.

    I was at the game in 1961, remember it well, I went on a coach from Ashton full of Wiganers. I had a massive smile on my face all the way home !!!!!
  11. Sad to hear that Robbob, I didn't know. I used to enjoy talking to him when he was home. His dad was a friend of my dad and we used to buy our diy things from the shop. Did'nt he have a brother who had a place in North Road?
  12. R.I.P. Chris, a Gentleman to the end.
