Thanks, Karen. The forum has never been the same without your mum.
Ten years? Eeek!

Daniel Adamson with family...

Adding to this discussion somewhat belatedly, I have just been reading that William Shaw, of Bardsley Brewery, was living at Riversvale Hall between 1847 and 1868.

Riversvale Hall was around half a mile from the brewery.

The problem was reported to me and I have reported it to the web host who seems to have resolved the issue.

That area was called 'Penny Meadow' long before that part of Katherine Street was re-named 'Penny Meadow'.

"Popular" may be an overstatement!

Hello Butty. Message sent to you.

Royal Mail is proposing to close Ashton's sorting office. The most noticeable effect this will have for most people is that they would in future need to go to Oldham's sorting office to pick up parcels or other items that could not be delivered.

Local MPs Jonathan Reynolds and Angela Rayner have set up a petition against this proposal.

If you may be affected by this, please feel free to sign.

Yes, a wonderful day. In just one morning the equivalent of around 20 years of our payments to the EU was wiped off the economy - and that means things like pension funds, ISAs, etc taking a massive hit.
Nigel Farage has now admitted that the idea that 350 million a week could go to the NHS rather than the EU was "a mistake" and MEP Daniel Hannan has back-pedalled on the idea that leaving the EU would bring immigration down.
I wonder which side was telling lies? Both, probably. But, now that Leave has won, they realise they can't fulfil the untrue things they'd promised.
Search engine companies have reported that one of the most popular searches in the UK on the day after the referendum was "What is the EU?" Even the Daily Mail has stunned its readers by telling them the consequences of the Leave vote include more expensive holidays and petrol.

Round and About / The Flying Scotsman
« on: June 14, 2016, 08:05 PM »
The Flying Scotsman has passed through Ashton twice in the last seven days. Both times it went along the line through the site of Park Parade Station and through Guide Bridge, before turning off to Denton and Stockport. This meant that it did not come through Charlestown Station.

I managed to snap it as it passed through Mossley. Sadly it is going downhill and not making much in the way of steam as it would have done if it had been going the other way.
