The Bungalow, Ainstable (Now Known As 'the Old Forge') - a Memory of Ainstable.
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).
