  1. and Kent Street Mission on Sunday!!
  2. I am looking for photographs of buses owned by local morris dancing troupes. Especially those used by Mrs Percival and the RONETTES of Warrington. saronie@live.co.uk
  3. The salford end has airators , as the locks are used for many sporting events the mersey ferry tour of the canal is good especially for lovers of wild life
  4. Thanks for the welcome, I have been around since 2004 but only became active on the internet when I became "semi" retired recently.
  5. Would you swim in Pennington Flash ? but they held the iron man swimming section in it.
  6. does anyone know why there are about 20 fire appliances parked up in the northbound works unit on the M6 at Newton-le-Willows
  7. on the "ice cold in alex" picture there is an Austin Metropolitan - I wonder if it was the one owned by Mr Bridge who owned a DIY shop on padgate lane?
  8. here is the wikipedia link about Gartons http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gartons_Agricultural_Plant_Breeders I found it very interesting
  9. I see on Winwick Lane (M6 J23 to Lowton Lane Head)there is a large wind sock in one of the farmers fields, wonder if this for landing or as a guide for crop spraying?
  10. Oh memories of the bone works at woolston
  11. I has been reported that the threepenny bit church at Lowton has been closed down this week by H&S
  12. Everyone in the country could spell K E Y N S H A M but could they spell Bristol?
  13. did anyone go to the Ritz to watch Peter Brough and Archie Andrews? did you get a mini mouth organ off Larry Addler? do you remember the late night pop concerts at the Odeon, I think Dave Warwick ran them
  14. /no mrntion of the Cameo. I seem to remember the rendezvous cinema / coffee bar / dance hall where Hilden House is now they opened the foyer as a cafe during the day
  15. I worked on the corner of forrest street for many years and i remember that wheh they opened knutsford road bridge on a sunny day, it expanded and they could not close it. the fire brigade would punp water on it to cool it down.
  16. i think it is a shame that it is not turned into a tourist attraction like the other two in this country, I think they hope it will fall down then no body will need to bother about it.
  17. I well remember the Ritz Cafe as the place our family went after funerals, I think they had a contract with the undertakers
  18. Why does Google maps think Lowton, Golborne, Leigh, Atherton etc, are in Pemberton. Now that IS confusing. For instance put in the post code WA3 3EE it comes up with Pemberton, Warrington, Wigan WA3 3EE
  19. I wonder if you have seen this website http://www.freewebs.com/wartran/
  20. I have just clicked on it from above and it worked ok . It works on IE and Mozilla
  21. I was just browsing Google maps when I noticed the runways was still intact and that it appeared to be in reasonable condition, so wondered if it was still in use. I remember when I worked at a local TV shop in my late teend we would drive across the runways as a shortcut from Stretton to Lymm. I notice on one of the recent photographs there is a windsock flying. The runway looks longer than the grass strip sy Haydock Park and that too is very close to the motorway. This is the map I was browsing. http://www.flightradar24.com/
  22. Looking on Google earth I see that the rinway at Stretton appear to be in reasonable condition, is it used by a flying club or microlights ?
