Barnston, Dale Camp c.1960

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)

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.
