Some Old-Bradshaw pictures to bring back some memories of the school, mill, houses and farms etc
Horton Place with the last house also being the Post Office and tuck shop. The school is just beyond these houses.
St John the Evangelist Church with the cenotaph in the foreground. I was a cub, then a scout and also in the choir here in 1976.
Co-operative Mills . I think that was the chimney that I saw fall when it was demolshed. I was in the school playground and it would have been around 1976.
Bradshaw Methodist Church
Right at the top of Bradshaw used to stand the Fieldings' White Castle Brewery.
My Sunday paper round finished at the last house on the left and with the Sunday supplements it meant they were heavy.
A view from the top of Bradshaw
Riley Lane looking up towards the Vicarage on the right and the Church on the left. I remember one of the boys that lived in the vicarage (Edmund I think his name was). I believe there was a swimming pool in the basement.
