I am sure the other two people in the photo are Jack & Marjorie Fletcher.
If I am correct then Jack was the manager in the Horwich End Co-op Butchers shop

Interesting in that the loading gauge is still there. Difficult to see when everything is in full growth and the height bar is bent and rusted up. I would love to see this corner cleared and the bridge and, the loading gauge made visible once again. A bench stands where the hut on the left used to be.

Been talking to my Father (he is 91) about Whaley Bridge. his fathers sister (Margaret 'Meg' Duff) was married to James Duff. James was a Cotton merchant in Manchester and the company trademark was a pennant, hence the name Pennant end.

Hedley Plant was a friend of my Mum [Jane} and Dad [Eric} and they named me Hedley. This was many moons ago, I am now 75 and I am hoping you may have some old photos that I could borrow to copy.

If anyone has any photos please email the site and your email address will be forwarded to Hedley

Turn Farm was my home as a child. It was my Father, John Lomas, and before him, my Grandfather, Edward Lomas who ran the farm. Alec is right, the farm was pulled down for the Chapel/ Whalley bypass. it was situated below Eccles Terrace.

Drill Hall 1907
In the Chapel-en-le-Frith album
Comment.
The fact that the first Drill Hall was replaced in 1938 by a much smaller building has always caused confusion, no apology needed. The interesting detail about the first Drill Hall is that it was a recycled church which St. Chrysostom's, (Victoria Park, Manchester) used when their church burnt down in 1904. When the replacement church opened at the end of 1906 the temporary church was removed and re-erected as a Drill Hall in Chapel-en-le-Frith. Amongst those present at the opening was Captain G. D. Goodman, Colonel Colles, Major Hall and Colonel Hall of Whaley Bridge.
