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.

I was married in this church on 23rd December 1950 to Eunice Ethel Smith who lived at High Mill Cottage.
