In the centre is Bob Elliot who was the head. Also I think the lady sitting to his left is Val Hall. She was a teacher at Whaley for many years then went on to become head at Hague Bar. Her husband was well known at chapel school (killer Hall) many will remember!

Just wondering whether you have a brother called Peter Charnley?
If so he was in my class at Whaley Bridge school, think you lived on Jodrell Road.

Peter Charnley was in my class at Whaley Bridge Primary School as well, so Marjorie it would seem that we were both in the same class. At one time I used to visit Peter's house in Jodrell Road and I do remember that he had a younger brother whom I assume is you, Paul. Also close by were chaps called David Wild and Derek Boothby. Are they still about?

Hi Marjorie & Graham, Yes, I remember you both, though 6 years younger than Pete. Peter lives in Pinner, North London, these days but i am sure he would be pleased to here from you, how do we make that happen?? I remember Derek but not sure about David, I will get on to Pete, he could put some pictures of New Mills School days up for you, I know he has some ..

This is definitely at the filter house. My late dad took them round and my sister Linda is in the photo. She is seen peeping between Mrs Hall and Mr Elliot.
