Delivery Days

A Memory of Biddulph

I was born and bred in the (then village) of Biddulph, south of the hall. My closest memories of the Old Hall were the stories my mother related to me, especially about the incidence of the siege during the Civil War and the use of the cannon, Roaring Meg, which was sent for from Stafford to assist in the siege, and according to her was fired from Nick o' the Hill on Congleton edge.
Further to that as a school boy I delivered newspapers in that area and one of my calls was to the people who lived in the Hall at that time, and I must add it was mighty spooky at seven o'clock on a dark winter's morning, and also I was given permission to wander the ruins of the main house and dream a little.
