Family Memories - a Memory of Crakehall.

Relatives of my mum, she is 85 years young, originally ran the Malt Shovel Inn in Crakehall. My mum was born in 1925 so this must have been the 1920s to 1930s. I have old photos of the Malt Shovel then but can find no records of them.

Anyone recall a Thomas Sadler who was a shoemaker in Crakehall and was at one time the owner of The Blacksmiths Shop and I think ran the Malt Shovel .
