    Winwick Hospital. history, photos and recollections

    I was a nurse at Winwick Hospital in the early 1970s. There used to be a website called Winwick Remembered which had a lot of photos and reminiscences but it no longer exists. There is a Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/groups/98498968505/ .

    I am curious whether the cause of this problem was found.

    Sign in password not recognised - multiple resets needed

    I tried deleting the saved logins for warrington worldwide forum but that didn't make any difference - password still not recognised (in Firefox). The signin window says to sign in with either the display name or email address. I have been trying to sign in with my email address so decided to try with my display name instead. And bugger me if that resulted in a successful signin - the problem wasn't my password, it was not recognising my email address.
  5. I have to keep resetting my password to be able to sign in, but after signing out and trying to sign back in I get "The password you entered is incorrect. Please try again (make sure your caps lock is off). " I am stuck in this loop. After one attempt to reset my password I got the following error message: "Sorry, there is a problem. You are not awaiting validation for a lost password request. Error code: 2S151/1" I have contacted admin and they have reset my password but the problem persists. Anyone else having this problem?

    Legh Street Baths

    Those illicit photos brought back many happy memories. I was a pupil at Richard Fairclough Secondary Modern School (Dickie Flourbags) from 1956 to 1960, and we were taken regularly by bus to the Legh Street baths for swimming lessons by Mr Anderson. I was mad keen on swimming in my teens, so much so that I had a season ticket. The baths had a workshop where my grandfather Jim Gibbins worked. He was a carpenter by trade and I would go and find him in the workshop after I had been swimming. I knew that area of Warrington well, I was in the army cadets which used the drill hall for training. I spent a year at Warrington Infirmary out of the three years that I did training as a nurse.

    Warren Hill Maternity Home, Woolston Road

    Final update: I have been in touch with the owners of Warren Hill at 2 Warren Lane Woolston, which is at the junction of Hillock Lane and Warren Lane, and they confirm that the premises were once used as a maternity home. Mystery solved!

    Warren Hill Maternity Home, Woolston Road

    Hi everyone, an update, Woolston RD on my birth certificate is an abbreviation for Woolston Rural District, not Woolston Road, sorry for the confusion! Warrington Library hasn't got any record of a maternity home in Woolston so if anyone comes across any information I would be interested.

    Warrington Walking Day c1952

    I can't remember where that photo was taken, I was probably walking with the Sunday School which I went to at St John's Mission Church in Grosvenor Avenue. I was also in the choir, so that meant I was at church three times every Sunday, first for the morning service to sing in the choir, then at the Sunday School in the afternoon, then back in the evening for the Sunday evening service to sing in the choir. Then choir practice one evening during the week.

    Warren Hill Maternity Home, Woolston Road

    Hi Dizzy, thanks for that info. I am going to try the library/museum, they may have a record in their archives and old maps or directories that show a Woolston Road.

    Warren Hill Maternity Home, Woolston Road

    Hi Dizzy, thanks for those replies. Regarding the 1911 census that you found using FindMyPast, schedule 11 gives 8 people living at that address: GORTON, Edward Head Married M 46 1865 Glue Manufacturer Lanc Dalton Nr Wigan VIEW GORTON, Elizabeth Wife Married 22 years F 48 1863 Lanc Shevington Nr Wigan VIEW GORTON, Sybil Daughter Single F 18 1893 Clerk Lanc Shevington Nr Wigan VIEW GORTON, Charlotte Margaret Daughter Single F 16 1895 Clerk Lanc Westhoughton Nr Bolton VIEW GORTON, Elizabeth Alice Daughter F 14 1897 School Girl Lanc Holcombe Brook Nr Myer VIEW GORTON, Clara Bimson Daughter F 12 1899 School Girl Lanc Holcombe Brook Nr Myer VIEW GORTON, Edward William Son M 10 1901 School Boy Lanc Holcombe Brook Nr Myer VIEW NARAH, Mary Servant Single F 28 1883 General Servant Lanc Hollinfare Nr Warrington VIEW Registration District: Warrington Sub District: Rixton Enumeration District: 2 Parish: Woolston with Martinscroft Address: Warren Hill Woolston Near Warrington County: Lancashire Regarding your second reply, I recognise the names of those lanes from my childhood and suspect that the maternity home was in that area. I did wonder whether my mother or father had got the address wrong but surely the Registrar would have been familiar with the correct address of a maternity home! Thanks again for trying to help.
