The lady at the front of the picture is possibly Mrs Hoyland with her son Alec. The outbuildings behind the ladies were called Moors Fold and are no longer there. The corner of Hall farm outbuildings can be seen just beyond Moors Fold. The building in the distance is Grange cottage and farm. The houses on the right of the photograph are Victoria Terrace which still stand today opposite the Methodist Church.


This photograph was accompanied by a letter from the late Albert Hancock with the above information that was written in the 1960s
