Start Lane

Comment.
The owner of the sand pit at Pennant End was Fred Barnes and the lorries were labelled 'Edwin Barnes and son'.
They were kept at Bridgemont by the junction of the Buxworth Road and the A6, and I think Fred lived in one of the houses facing the railway on the Furness Vale side of the bridge. My brother Wilf worked for him for a few years in the 1950s
I lived in Jodrell Road and remember the lorries loaded with sand crawling down Whaley Lane in low gear. When Fred retired the pit was sold to a company in the Manchester area but I don't remember when this was.
I sometimes cycled via Hockerley Lane, Whaley Lane and Pennant End to Kettleshulme and back down Macc. Road. Quite an exciting adventure. Also during summer vacations I worked as a postman and the round I did included the far end of Start Lane to Pennant End, and across via Baileys Farm to Lyme Handley. I then called in at Kettleshulme Post Office to collect the bike which had been left earlier and pedalled back to Whaley.
This afternoon I had a look on-line at the 1939 register. This gives the occupant of 'Pennant' as John McGuffin, Director of shirt manufacturer, and of 'Pennant End' as Jame Duff, Merchant, cotton goods.

Brilliant Derek, I had looked on 'street view' and couldn't find the houses on Buxton Road with the two apex roof sections. but the houses are right at the end of the block and do fit in with the photo of the church. Much of the church grounds have been altered since the photograph was taken.

Toddbrook House
In the Whaley Bridge T-Z album
Comment.
The house used to be called Isca when Mr. & Mrs. Ragdale lived there. They kept goats and had I seem to remember a crocodile skin covering a wall in the house. Later it was converted into a nursing home and re-named Anisca. I never knew it to be Todbrook House. Mr Ragdale was manager/director/owner??? of The Botany Bleach Works at Horwich End. Mrs. Ragdale ran (I Believe) the local RSPCA branch on Chapel Road.
There are Ragdale children still living in the WB area.

The man second from right behind and between Amy and the man with the basket is my maternal Great Grandfather JOHN GOODWIN DOWNS - Born Ollersett 1862, Died 1927. Obituary in REPORTER April 23 1927 it states he was elder of the Council for twentyfive years before his death.The Mission Room at Bridgemont had been erected shortly before he came to reside in this district. He joined the mission in which he had since been very active. For many years he had been General Superintendant and rarely missed any services. I have photographs of my Grandfathers Wedding in 1913 taken outside the Mission but do not know how to attach them.

Thank you for the message. Sorry to say we do not run to attaching photos on this site, just the forum. There is an email address on the homepage where they can be sent, it is admin@whaleybridgephotos.co.uk
If you send them I will put them on this site with links to this photograph. (Now done, see links below)
