Collingwoods

She lived with her mother Eliza until her death in 1917. Mary herself died in 1949 aged 83, unmarried, in the workhouse in Wigton. Mary was my great-great-great-aunt - the sister of ...Read full memory

The white cottage on the right was the shop, and later also became the post office.  The original one was in the white cottage to the left and was run by Mrs Rowlands until her death.

The Bungalow, Ainstable (Now Known As 'The Old Forge')

Harold Armstrong (my father) and Rachel Mavis bought 'The Bungalow' (opposite 'The Crown Inn' pub) in about 1942/3 for about £300. We lived there until 1957. My two brothers, John and Robert, were born at The Bungalow and we all attended Ainstable School (role approx. 30). Mrs Glaister and Miss Jopson were the teachers. Other residents of Ainstable at the time included the Robinson family (children : Joan and Ian), the Winters next door (originally ran the Pub - Jack Winter was the Landlord), and the Hogarths; the Knubleys (with grandson Ronnie Wilson), the Prouds across the road (family, Valerie and several more, sorry cannot remember names); the Banks (ran the shop for many years).
