Re: GOOD TV

I watched Digging Up Britain's Past and The Bone Detectives but missed that one Gloria. Saturday night is turning into history night on TV!
One of our History Society members gave a talk on the history of Blackpool on Tuesday, that was very interesting too.

Re: WHAT ATTRACTED YOUR ATTENTION TODAY?

Just go steady on the whisky! Took me days to recover from my first Burns Supper in Scotland and years till I could enjoy a wee dram again. Still love a bit of Burns especially "Sic a wife as Willie had".

No idea where it is but I think the N is uppercase and the right right way round, the base of the barrier post is covering the point on the top left. :laugh5:

Re: TODAY'S PENNINE WEATHER

The cloud came down to our level as it went dark which made for an unpleasant drive to Earby and back last night for the history society meeting. I hate that road in thick mist, it goes in too many unexpected directions! Pitch black outside now, so we are probably still in the clouds.

Re: TODAY'S PENNINE WEATHER

"Lillbullero" got me thinking, way off topic. The only version I have heard was the one performed by Bellowhead, it seems they were actually singing "The Farmer's Curst Wife" to the same tune as other, more political versions of the song.

Not Spencer, Archie was registered as Archie Harrison Mountbatten - Windsor. They remain the Duke & Duchess of Sussex so they could also call themselves Sussex. 🙂

Re: Craven Harrison’s – Jeremiah 1740 vs Jeremiah 1741

Francis Harrison married to Martha Swire was probably Earby's last corn miller, also called Frankie in some of the Thornton in Craven parish records. He is still noted as a miller in 1811 but we know that there was an attempt to convert the mill to spinning cotton around the turn of the century. Wil...

There are many graves that dont have headstones Ian, or they may have been lost long before the inscriptions were recorded in the 20th century.

Re: MYSTERY OBJECTS

The design is similar to toll houses, but it's too big for that. Custom house?
