Re: Hardware shop in Newtown

According to the Electoral Registers Cambell McGregor was at 18 Newtown until 1946 and in 1947 Reginald & Ida Birch were there. I just need to find out when the Birch family left and John Elmer took over!

Re: Hardware shop in Newtown

No mention of Birch in the index Wendy. This topic covers Elmer's on the corner of Newtown and Albert Rd which would have been the same shop. https://oneguyfrombarlick.co.uk/viewtopic.php?f=61&t=14795&p=127103&hilit=Ironmongers#p127103 https://www.oneguyfrombarlick.co.uk/app.php/gallery/image/2137/...

Re: Hardware shop in Newtown

What electoral role information is on Ancestry? It's a long time ago, but last time I looked, the only way to access it was a visit in person to Preston. It depends on which area you are looking for Tripps. West Yorkshire is well covered between1840 and 1962 but not Lancashire. UK 2003 to 2010, eve...

Hardware shop in Newtown

I received an email through the Earby History Society this morning asking for any memories of a hardware shop in the town run by Reginald Birch in the late 60s. A quick check of electoral rolls on Ancestry showed that Reginald and his wife Ida lived at 18, Newtown between 1948 and 1962 so I think th...

I arranged family and friend get togethers here for both my 50th and 60th birthday celebrations which were both enjoyable but hard work and I can't face doing anything like that again!

Re: Coronavirus (Covid19) Corner

I follow the daily figures for the North West on the Pendle Today website, there is a second link which breaks down the Lancashire County Council area into areas.

Well! Here's a peep into my polytunnel, with commentary! What with the baking heat followed by high winds over the last couple of days it hasn't been a pleasant place to be, so it needs some care and attention.

Re: TODAY'S PENNINE WEATHER

Absolutely foul day with constant rain and 30 to 40mph winds. I brought the ponies inside this morning for a break from the weather as they were wet and cold despite being rugged up. As the rain has eased, but not the wind I've just but them back out. They didn't thank me for keeping them warm and d...

Well - that was a bit of fun yesterday wasn't it. We still haven't seen Stanley's fiery video though which I thought was the object of the exercise.. I've had a good look at my Facebook account and (I think) made it even more private than it was. I can still have the occasional skulk around anonymo...
