Grange Over Sands, The Beach 1896

Memories of Grange-Over-Sands


Hi I have a very old postcard on the then N.E.C. Convalescent Home at Grange-Over-Sands, my father was there in or around the 1930's - he was there there quite a long time till he recovered from his illness. I wonder if it is still there, and if so have they made it into a hotel, or what ever as I would like to visit it this summer Yours sincerely Joyce Gregson

Is that Yewbarrow Lodge (the original one) in the background? Hit by incendiary bombs in 1941, and burnt badly. We used to play in the remains as children - Sadly SLDC didn't rebuild as per Colonel Porritt's wishes, and now although serving a great purpose as a nursing home, is a ghastly eyesore.

I purchased this photo in a gentlemans clothes shop in Grange-Over-Sands as i believe the two children sitting on the wall could be my mum and uncle who were evacuated there during the second world war,so i wondering if the date could be later!?..The two children one at the front looks as if it could be my mum as she remembers (...Read full memory)

My Grandfather owned the K-shoes shop in Main Street - Albert Myers. I was born in 1970, and this is pretty much how main street looked while I was growing up, except the style of the cars!
