R & H Law

Main Street c1960, Grange-Over-Sands
Enlarge photo |  More about this photo

My Grandfather, Harry Dewhurst, was a partner/owner (I am not sure of the exact commercial position) of R & H Law (Main Street, Grange-over-Sands) in the 1950s. I remember R & H Law having all all four shop fronts as per this image. The shop sold carpets and furniture; including supplying carpets to local businesses. My late aunt told me that the Belsfield hotel in Bowness still has carpets supplied by my grandfather; who lived on Methven Road in Grange, with his wife Lily.

Anyway as a young boy I enjoyed trips to Grange and my grandparents, meeting my two cousins, and playing in the ornamental gardens. During the 80s/90s my two children enjoyed doing the same, and my daughter in particular now has the same love of Grange as I have; though with different memories. My memories are now only shared with my two cousins, my brother being too young to remember my grandparents.

If you haven't been to Grange, get there and enjoy the ornamental gardens and promenade. The old outdoors baths is no longer opened (see another Frith photo) but I did go in it once, circa 1960. Once was enough; cold salt water!!

RE: R & H Law

I lived in Grange on Kents Bank Rd from 1978 - 1985. We bought a few pieces of furniture in Laws, which we still have but are now in Australia. I have wonderful memories of Grange and close family who still live there. I still think it is one of the prettiest places in the world.
