Talking about Ashton / Sugar Lane and Penny Meadow
« on: February 19, 2012, 08:50 PM »

My family lived on Sugar Lane 1851 to 1861, it appears to be near to Penny Meadow and Cowhill Lane, does anyone know where it was exactly.

Also, I know Penny Meadow is named after an area once owned by Rev Penny, but in the census it is Katherine Street, does anyone know when this section of Katherine Street officially became Penny Meadow, I know I've always known it by this name.

Talking about Ashton / Stamford High School video

Here's a video of Stamford High School, thought I would film it before it disappears. It was all locked up and I couldn't get in the grounds, but this is what I managed to get of the frontage.

Here's my latest video, the day was sunny when I set out, but by the end of this video I was soaked. Road looks good though.

Talking about Ashton / Miss Warren
« on: December 22, 2011, 08:05 PM »
Someone on the Ashton under Lyne facebook page mentioned Miss Warren, teacher at Stamford but prior to this she was my favourite teacher at Heginbottom Girls School. I've now discovered that she died on the 28th July this year, aged 87yrs., I can't believe I missed the announcement, I would have liked to have paid my respects at her funeral.
I always remember what a super teacher she was, and when she bought her new mini car, named Bambi because it was a little dear.
RIP Miss Warren, you were loved and respected by your pupils and will always be remembered.

Thank you to everyone who contacted me asking me to come back, especially Bill, Martin sent me the link to your placard, how could I refuse a request like that  ;D
