Aye correct. He was Ewart. Me dad's just told me off. How dare I get the name wrong of a legend?
'What sorta job are you doin?'
'Well. Ewart - I need a few nails to mend me dog pen.Y' know - galvanised ones.'
'Ere - tek a few o these.'

Brilliant stuff - and Ewart was a lovely guy. Lived at the bottom of Prospect if I remember.

Re: Waterfoot too many questions and no answers

Ewart Beardsworth - a name from my childhood as his family were friends with my Aunt who I used to visit, in Booth Road, in the 1950's. Never knew until now what he did for a living, until now. Thanks.

My question - someone must remember Queenie's sweet shop. Somewhere near the tripe shop on Booth Road , opposite The Jolly Sailor, if I remember.

Also, why a pub called Jolly Sailor in the middle of a town nowhere near the sea?

Re: Waterfoot too many questions and no answers

My mum did some research I believe into the naming of the Jolly Sailor, I think it was named randomly as the pub received some applied "theme" with lots of nautical patterns and objects etc on display inside, and name the Jolly Sailor. I seem to remember it being something like this, so nothing really too exciting though of course it could well be completely wrong!!


I NEVER, in all my Scouting days (I am still a very keen Scout in the county and will be at Bowley again on Wednesday!) NEVER knew that the flag pole once resided in Lumb!! It always intrigued me as to its weird shape, looking indeed very much like a ship's mast! I've broke that flag a few times now!

Re: The houses at the west end of Bolton Woods. These I would have thought were originally houses for groundskeepers for Heightside House? The original living quarters for the gardeners and groundskeepers for the Bolton Estate are the houses on Bolton Street in Newchurch, which have a rather interesting history in their own right, having seen deeds and such associated with them. I think the row at the end of the woods were houses, and laid in ruin for a long time, though in the last 10 years or so have been rebuilt into an extension of the property that was present there still.

I think I have seen/own a picture of the row of houses on Bridleway, either in a book, online or in one of my photos I have copies of. If I remember rightly, it it as they are gutted ready for demolition.
