Grange-Over -Sands,

Hi I have a very old postcard on the then N.E.C. Convalescent Home at Grange-Over-Sands, my father was there in or around the 1930's - he was there there quite a long time till he recovered from his illness. I wonder if it is still there, and if so have they made it into a hotel, or what ever as I would like to visit it this summer Yours sincerely Joyce Gregson

R & H Law

Main Street c1960, Grange-Over-Sands

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... Read more

THE GRANGE HOTEL

I worked at the Grange Hotel from 1983 until 1986. I lived in Grange for another six years at The Cottage, Graythwaite Manor. I left Grange in 1992 with my family when we moved to Australia. Enjoyed seeing the old photos of Grange, especially the one of the Grange Hotel.
