Memories of Barnston


I attended here circa 1969/70 for one year. I hated every minute. I lived about 3 miles away and we had to get a bus there every morning.

I am serching for my relations, Dulice Waring, married Gerald Lewis, I know they had a son called Gerald, I think he was an only child. Before Dulcie and Gerald moved to this area they lived in Eastham, Merseyside. I believe the son is still alive, but have no idea of the address (...Read full memory)

The Fox and Hounds was a great place to meet friends and have a game of darts and a pint or two. I can remember a warm fire on a winters night and a friendly publican. The place had a typical English country pub feel and my mates and I were always made welcome. I worked on the place as a painter in the 60`s, and was always given a free pint with lunch. Pete

The building on the right with the telephone box outside was the post office and store run by a lady called Mrs Locker. I used to deliver the Liverpool Echo to the Fox and hounds and most of the houses in the village. I still try and visit the Fox and Hounds at least once a year and it's nice to see that the village hasn't changed at all in the intervening years except for the amount of traffic.
