Memories of Barnston


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

Hi I am currently doing my family tree. My grandad was born in Dale cottage in Barnston Dip and would like to know if there are any old photos from 1900. His name was Charlie Howard and his mother and fathers names were Thomas Howard and Hannah Herbert !

This building is still known as Tree Cottage, Old Lane, but the postal address has been changed to Barnston Road which causes a lot of confusion. I have lived here since 2002 and traced the previous owners back to 1851, but apparently the cottage is much older.

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.
