I remember the Hawley Hotel very well. I was a bridesmaid to my uncle and his new wife who had their reception there. We also used to go for Sunday lunches there and later on in years it used to host a evenings for C B clubs (before the days of mobile phones!!)

Do you remember the Hawley Hotel in the seventies and eighties, we took our children to the bonfire nights there.

My paternal great grandfather, Thomas Feasey, married Kate Amelia Lovegrove in Hawley on 4th January 1879. Does anyone else have a memory of Thomas and Kate?
